... this lavishly illustrated text, describes the development of the game in all its forms, in tandem with detailing the histories of many of its clubs and their playing arenas. This is by no means an easy task and the author is to be commended not only for the detail embedded within the narrative but also for the structure of the text, which takes the reader through the background of the sport and its associated organisations and spaces in a logical and easy to follow order. ... a publication that adds considerably to the literature on the creation of playing spaces for sport and one that highlights the ongoing importance of bowls as an activity for all classes and ages. ... Readers of any persuasion, particularly those with interest in sports and leisure history or social history, will surely find something to stimulate and inform them within this engaging and well-written text. -- David Day, Manchester Metropolitan University * Landscape History, Volume 37, Issue 2, 2016 *
