The beautiful Oxfordshire village of Marsh Baldon, is like stepping back in time. Cricket on the village green, surrounded by thatched cottages a wonderful pub, what more could you ask for!!!

a friendly match wicket

A quaint like pavilion

BUT WAIT A MINUTE....................
IS THAT A ROAD THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE PITCH?




reminds me of Shamley Green near Guildford

Ive played at grounds where the pavilion is across the road but never with a road inside the boundary  :o

I often think these sort on enforced local rules/pictes are fun (to play at once anyway), but it all seems a bit unnecessary in this case when you look at a map!

One would have thought that it would have made more sense to have laid the square closer to the middle of the green rather than incorporate a road as part of the outfield but there you go

Kew has a public footpath inside the boundary which is an issue on a nice day!

Drove past it on Sunday - the boundary into the road is short!

Life goal - to play a Kane Williamson dab to 3rd man for one.
