HER Description

NEHL - A cricket ground is illustrated on Ordnance Survey maps in the 1910s, though is not apparent on either the 1890s or 1930s maps. It was likely used by Thornley Cricket Club, who had an active team as early as the 1850s. To suggest they had played in this field from then would be a guess, but not unlikely.

The field featured one small building in the south west corner - likely the pavilion. By the 1930s, this field was reclaimed and the pavilion demolished. A recreation ground and football ground were constructed nearby.
