HER Description

NEHL - A football ground was laid here, seemingly in replacement of the Moor Lane ground, around the 1930s. It has been quite difficult to assess who played at this ground, but may have been Wingate Welfare FC and/or Wingate United who played in the Hartlepools and District League.

The ground had a very small pavilion adjoining the entrance at North Road, and had limited facilities. It was simply an enclosed ground, probably maintained and cut with posts around the ground itself.

By the 1950s it was developed into the Vicarage Estate, and the ground was lost. Aerial imagery from the 1940s doesn't show any ground, meaning it likely came out of use after the war.
