Bowling Enchanted Woods

Gordon Allan

Gordon Allan entered journalism straight from school in Aberdeen in 1951. After seven years on the local newspapers, interrupted by National Service in the RASC, he spent thirty years in Fleet Street, mainly as a sports sub-editor and reporter with The Times. He lives in Carshalton, Surrey.


Temporarily out of stock.

There are open or seaside bowls tournaments going on somewhere almost every week of the summer in England, and in this book Gordon Allan describes his journey round fifteen of them, from Broadstairs in the east to Teignmouth in the west. He conveys by thumbnail sketch the flavour of each place – its background, history and traditions.

The author touches on the perennial difficulty of finding markers, remembers happy days bowling in Sussex and Devon, and ends the book by detailing the principal English bowls tournaments.
