Public Bowling Green

(C) Jon Smalldon 2014 - All rights reserved

According to Wikipedia, the game of bowls can be traced back to at least the thirteenth century and potentially the twelfth.  Certainly it seems that the idea of rolling or throwing an object in the direction of another object is so universal that bowls must have a claim on being the oldest ‘sport’ even if the actual projectiles and techniques have changed over time.

This green is the public one in Alexandra Park in Hastings.  On a frosty, freezy, wintry morning there is no one around to play bowls.  Those who would wish to roll their woods must go indoors to satisfy their cravings.
