Ravensknowle Park green opening date


I am grateful to Denis Machen for getting touch to tell me about the time that the green at Ravensknowle Park was constructed.


Denis recalls that he was just a teenager at the time when his father was a regular bowler at the new Ravensknowle Park green. He remembers visiting the site when the green was being built and talking to a Scotsman involved who let him lay a turf. He can never remember bowling on that green as he had other sporting preferences at that time although his younger brother, Terry, did bowl on the green.


He is not quite sure of the exact year but believes that it was either 1951 or 1952 and until someone tells me differently I am adding 1951 as the opening date to my list which is updated and below. If you can fill in any of the missing eight dates then I will be really pleased to hear from you. Contact Us
