Description

When cricket was democratised and taken up more widely in the nineteenth century, the pavilion became an essential item for every cricket club. Pavilions provide the necessary facilities – changing areas, room to eat, drink and socialise, an external clock, a scoreboard, a view of the pitch – but also a home for the trophies, scorebooks, records and archives that embody the history and heritage of a club. Whether thatched pavilions on village greens, ornate Victorian structures or modernist icons, the cricket pavilion is at the heart of the game’s architectural, social and cultural significance.Superbly illustrated throughout, this book will be of interest to those who enjoy the game and appreciate the rich variety of architectural styles represented in cricket pavilions across the country.
