Wrotham Bowls Club became a viable organisation in early 1988. A number of local residents got together and the Club was born. We are chatting to old members and researching through the minutes of AGM meetings. Hopefully more information will be gathered to build up a more comprehensive picture of the club.
History of the Green
Hugh Hornby, author of ‘Bowled Over: The bowling greens of Britain’ has provided a summary of the oldest bowling greens in Britain which ranks Wrotham Bowls green as the 10th oldest dating back to 1759. Click here to read his report.
Hugh’s book was published by Historic England in 2015.
There are also two reports that an archaeologist and historian prepared for our bowls club showing that there may be archaeological remains from the original Archbishops' Palace (situated adjacent to our green) .
