Radway Cricket Club play at Stoneleigh Abbey – what a delightful day.


I don’t normally write about the family but I couldn’t resist with this one.

We all had a superb day playing and watching cricket. I did the later. The cricket pitch at Stoneleigh is directly in front of Stoneleigh Abbey, made for a superb back drop to enjoy one of England’s finest games. The cricket club was founded in 1839 by Lord Chandos Leigh, it is thought to be one of the oldest and most famous cricket clubs in Warwickshire and has been voted as one the lovelist in Enlgand too.

The Abbey itself is well worth a visit and is open for most of the summer. www.stoneleighabbey.org

The opposition were deilightful, they very friendly and provided a lovely tea for the Radway Cricket team but also kept those watching on pefefectly fed and watered too.  We didn’t win, but that couldn’t take away the most superb day that we all had.
