Durham County Cricket Club was established on 23rd May 1882, and they played their first match at Chester Road cricket ground, Sunderland, on 12th June 1882 when they defeated Northumberland by 4 wickets. Between 1992 and 1994 Durham had a nomadic existence with no proper home venue, although they by this time had established players of the calibre of Ian Botham, David Graveney, Wayne Larkins, Paul Parker, Geoff Cook, Dean Jones and Simon Hughes on the playing staff. Detailed planning approval was granted in April 1993 for Durham County Cricket Club to create their own ground with visions of Test Match and International Cricket being staged in the North-East of England. The cricket ground strategic master plan was prepared by Newcastle architects Ainsworth Spark Associates and it involved the development of some 6.3 hectares (14.9 acres) of green field land. Of the 6.3 hectares, the cricket playing area covered 2.1 hectares (5.2 acres). Work on the outfield and playing surface began in 1993 and this included the construction of a high quality "cricket square" in readiness for the beginning of the 1995 season.
