HER Description

NEHL - Curling was introduced to the town by Patrick Bruce Junor, a Scottish Brewer and avid Rugby player who formed Tudhoe Football Club and previously played at Durham and Houghton.

The curling pond was located just north of the old bicycle track and about 100m west of the Tower Brewery he took on. It was a rectangular pond unconnected to the Valley Burn. The pond will have frozen over in winter to enable Curling to take place.

The pond had disappeared by the mid 20th century.
