So many of these are disappearing that despite it’s ruinous state,
I thought it worth recording.
Visited with Eeka and 2 non-members.

Built in 1938, Brogborough Sports and Social Club was right at
the heart of village life, with many regular events being organised
and a well supported Bowls Club.

Over the years though, with the closing of the clay pits and brickworks,
and the influx of commuters-to-London into the village, interest in the club diminished.

It has been speculated that the smoking ban was the final nail in the club’s coffin.
It closed in 2007.

In 2010 the club was on the market for £700,000.

In 2012 outline planning permission was granted to demolish the derelict
building and to redevelop the site for 16 new homes, including 6 affordable
homes. The land was sold in June 2013 to a local house builder who will
deliver all of the planned homes as affordable units.
