Ossett Bowling Club, 1900s
Ossett Bowling Club members in action circa 1910. The clubhouse in the background is that of Ossett Cricket Club and by the look of the crowds, there was a game in progress when this photograph was taken.
The club's location is Dimple Wells Lane, Ossett and the clubhouse has now been extended under the stewardship of the Ossett Cricket and Athletic Club who offer function rooms for business meetings, parties, weddings, funerals, and sports training.
My thanks to Pat Broughton (nee Milner) for this photograph. Pat is an ex-pupil of Ossett Grammar School, but has now escaped to live in rural Sussex.
