Brief Description

This recreational site featured facilities for bowls, tennis and cricket, along with a dedicatory plaque in the clubhouse. The site fell into disuse in the early 1990s following a failed planning application for commercial use. The site has recently (2016) been stripped for development as a new school.

History
