Forgotten memories re-ignited, 20 Oct. 2011
Chris Arnot has made a major contribution to cricket's never ending tide of literature. His beautifully presented coffee table type book is full of memories of forty lost cricket grounds, from all levels of the game from county to club cricket.
Having seen cricket on eight of these grounds means that it has a particular relevance for me, but I am sure most cricket lovers will appreciate the memories of long ago, of both people and places, coupled with some stunning photographs.
The sadness of the loss of Hastings as a county venue is rightly given pride of place, but as a Yorkshireman the stories of Bramall Lane, Sheffield, The Circle at Hull and Fartown at Huddersfield are most interesting. All forty grounds have their own unique stories from Dover in the south to Edinburgh in the north.
A book to enjoy and cherish.
