Tynemouth Cricket Club
Founded in 1847 and first played on the land called Brock's Farm in North Sheilds. This was the first ground until 1848 when the site of the Workhouse alongside Preston Hospital was used until 1885 when they acquired the present site at Preston Avenue.
The model is a replica of the original pavilion built in 1902.

Work in progress but funds depleted.
