Pleasington playing fields where built in 1935 (BWD website)
Somebody mentioned earlier in the thread that it was stated in a book it was near the Butlers Arms inn.
Looked at some old maps and thought it may have been where the bowling green is, but since found the Bowling green was opened in 1846, but to the side of the Butlers / bowling green there was a big open flat surface , on this map its divided into sections (near the road where houses now are).
But there is a map online 1900 or so that shows the two bigger houses not built but land divided and a couple of structures no longer there (club house?).

obviously pure guess work taking into account old maps , lay of the land etc and the old book mentioned in a previous post. Would also make sense having a cricket ground near a pub 🙂
A newspaper article from time mentions that the Preston player that sadly died , was carried into the Butlers Arms
