A Nightwatchman at Broadhalfpenny Down

The Summer 2022 edition of Wisden's Nightwatchman features Broadhalfpenny Down.

Author Jon Hotten (who played for The Authors at Broadhalfpenny Down recently) has done a "history in fragments" picking 6 games from across the last 250 years or so. The excellent article features photography from recent Brigand's matches, the New Year's Day game, and the iconic image of Harry Bates fixing the clock. With thanks to David Henderson and Bryan Burns for their additional research.

A great story, well told; and recommended reading for anyone interested in cricket.
