Warkworth has been singled out as one of the most iconic cricket scenes in the UK.
The accolade has come in a book called "The Country's Most Iconic Cricket settings". The author, Brian Levison, travelled to grounds around the country.
The club sits in the shadow of Warkworth Castle, with views out to sea to the Coquet Estuary.
Despite its relatively small catchment area, the club has won the Northumberland League Premier Division 7 times and the Thomas Wilson Cup, a knockout competition, on 9 occasions, most recently in 2011.

English cricket bosses are bidding to find a solution to the money problems that have threatened the future of Durham County Cricket Club.
Last week Durham agreed a financial aid package with the English Cricket Board and were relegated as part of a range of sanctions.
But deals still need to be worked out with the club's other creditors and the ECB has asked them to support their suggested solution.
One of the club's creditors is Durham County Council:
We need to put that in front of out members and they need to weigh up the pros and cons of what's in that letter. We'll look to make a decision as quickly as possible around that. We'll be balancing the money we're owed with keeping a viable cricket club, because the best chance we have of getting our money back is making sure first class cricket stays in the north east.
Durham will be relegated to Division Two of the County Championship and start the 2017 season with a 48-point penalty in this competition.Read the full story ›
