According to Percy Laithwaite’s “History of the Conduit Lands Trust”, in 1694 a grant was given by the Trust in order to mend two stiles on the way to the Bowling Green. It is probable that there was a bowling green on this site in 1520, as records show that in 1523 a Vicar was fined for failing to attend choir practice because he was playing bowls. It is also believed that bowls was played on the green by the local Franciscan Friars.
Today it is a Private club - Members Only – not connected to The Bowling Green pub. A very active club which holds sessions every day and most evenings for social or leagues matches.
