A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
A couple of years ago I managed to get into the grounds of Wood Green Bowls Club and took a few photographs of the gradually fading clubhouse and scoreboard.
The photographs are in a slide show below - including one or two of the Original 1905 Barford and Perkins Lawn Roller which was still in use at the club 100 years after it was made.
The club itself reached its centenary in 2006 - and published a pamphlet detailing their history to mark the occasion. See below. Does anyone know when they closed?

Great photos. The clubhouse looks almost identical to the one at Noel Park (Chapmans Green, N22) which is still used. The BBC did this interesting piece on the current decline of the sport nationally- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12911969
The 'Honours Board', noting annual winners going back to 1935 or so is in safe custody, awaiting a new and more positive twist in the fortunes of the Bowling Club Pavilion! (I don't have them - there are three in all - but they are under lock and key care of the council at the moment).
