The abandoned and derelict bowling green and pavilion in the mid-1970s after the Miners’ Welfare had been taken over by Leeds City Council. They attempted to charge on a pay-per-play basis but the members were indignant after playing for free for many years so they dispersed to other clubs at Rothwell and Woodlesford.
