Tyne and Wear HER(16960): Hebburn Sports and Social Club (cricket ground) - Details
Hebburn Sports and Social Club (cricket ground)
The cricket ground was laid out by switchgear manufacturering company Reyrolle in 1928. Employees were charged a few pence a week for use of its facilities. In the late 1940s it was open to the public. In 1982 South Tyneside Council bought the ground and now lease it to Hebburn Sports and Social Club, which includes Hebburn Town FC (HER 16959), cricket, tennis and bowls. Lynn Pearson describes the pavilion as 'rather quirky'.
