Whitley Bay, Victoria Park Bowling Green
Ball Sports Site
The Rockcliffe Bowling and Tennis Club was founded in 1925. The bowling green is publicly owned (the working class bowlers could not afford to set up a private club). The unusual timber clubhouse, painted green and white, is built onto the end of a row of terraced houses (Cheviot View).
