Beetwell Street Bowling Green


An early English Bowling Green, possibly dating to the 13th Century, though there is no documentary evidence for this claim .The first mention of a ‘bowling alley’ on this site is found in the corporation order book for 1651. A continuous history can be traced from that date and the site is still in use by Chesterfield Bowling Club.

 A full history of the site can be found in ‘Chesterfield Streets and Houses’ (Riden,Leteve & Sheppard 2019, pp 68-71)
