Business overview

Welcome to the website of Backworth Miners Welfare. Offering a wide range of sporting and social activities, weddings and functions catered for. Function Room available to hire.

Backworth Hall and Golf Club is one of those hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.

Although the golf course was built in the 20th century, Backworth Hall dates back to the late 18th century and was the home of Ralph William Grey, a wealthy landowner and gentleman. The Grey family originated from Newcastle and after a number of land purchases, they put together a considerable estate covering present day Backworth, Shiremoor, Earsdon, Monkseaton, Holywell and Longbenton.

In the early 19th century, coal mining steadily became big business in this region and following a dispute over the rights to work coal in the Backworth area, the Duke of Northumberland purchased the whole of the Grey Estate.
