Recreation Ground
Description:
Undated. In 1922 the Parish Council bought the field known as Crosbys, located at the corner of Old Lane and Sugar Lane. The money was raised by public subscription as a memorial to those who died in the First World War. In 1951 the ground was levelled creating a football pitch. Cricket has also been played here.
