Wallsend Cricket Club
NEHL - This cricket ground on Denham Terrace was founded in the 2nd half of the 19th century. Unfortunately it is not clear who played there, though it is extremely likely it was Wallsend Cricket Club who are well documented in newspapers during the 1880s. As part of the Wallsend's growth during the early 20th century, the cricket ground disappeared under terraced housing. There was a small pavilion in the north west of the ground. The cricket ground is visible in aerial photos from the 1930s.
