Synopsis This publication, part of English Heritage's 'Played in Britain' series, will examine British bowls culture - with a particular emphasis on the places where the game is played. Historic greens will be featured and those that have attractive or unusual settings. Or, like Worthing or the Waterloo in Blackpool, they could be significant as hosts of major competitions or events over the years. And perhaps a club's interesting pavilion, or scoreboard, or weathervane, or collection of old woods will also find a place in this eagerly anticipated book that will fill a major void in the fascinating story of bowls.
