History

Roxeth Recreation Ground dates from the early-20th century. Its name recalls the medieval manor and hamlet of Roxeth, which was rural until housing development began to take place in the early-20th century. By 1914 some houses had been built to the west but much of the surrounding area remained undeveloped until the 1940/50s and even today there is much open land.
