The cricket club? It says late 1700s and originally built as a farmhouse on a different page of their own website so one of them is wrong!


The listing notice for same building says probably late 18th/early 19th century. https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1163454

Are we counting clubhouses that used to be something else? I only ask, because famously the technically correct answer for "what's the oldest railway station on the network?" would for many years have been Bourne, in Lincs, where a house dating from 1605 was the booking office...

Standeven House at Old Crossleyans, Halifax is an example of a clubhouse with a former use, in this case as a dormitory for the old school.

I was looking at the club info page on the same site.
As you say they do not seen to keep their story straight.
So they are almost certainly the murderer. :-)
