HER Description

NEHL - A football ground was situated at East Stanley from at least the 1940s through to the late 20th century. The ground may have been used by a number of clubs, i.e Stanley United, however this has not been proved. If you know who played here, please give me a shout!

The ground is seen on 1940s aerial imagery. There is a canopy on the north side and was clearly used often given the wear marks on the ground. No other details can be identified, though it was neighbouring a cricket ground.

It is shown on the 1960s Ordnance Survey maps at the top of West Street, though it appears to be fairly primitive with no formal facilities.

Nowadays. the ground is intact but appears disused.
