There have been a number of cricket grounds in the town.
1) In the early 19th century there was a four-acre plot on the Marsh, bounded by Marsh Lane to the north, Terminus Terrace to the west, Central Bridge to the south and the mainline railway line in the east.
2) The Antelope Cricket ground opened in the 1840s. See separate entry.
3) Hoglands (image 2) has traditionally been a venue for cricket. It is marked as a public cricket ground on the OS 1:2500 map of 1880.
4) The county ground (image 1) in Northlands Road, successor to the Antelope Ground, was opened in 1884.
