You can just make out the square at Hawkley CC which I passed today on a ‘William Cobbett’ Rural Ride (Walk) around mid-east Hampshire. Like the previous photo below it seems light years from Sky Sports, IPL, DOAG etc

I have a picture of the pavilion, but know little about the club. My entry in ‘Changing Rooms’ is:

HAWKLEY – Upper Green (Photo 2006)
HAWKLEY CC. (HCL 1973-1980), Founded in 1890.

We met an old chap from the village who looks after the place. He said they used to run the Saturday League and Sunday friendly sides but now it’s just Sundays. He said many younger people have left the village and wealthier new people have moved there. There is a cottage (two bedrooms) next to the ground for sale but it’s over £400k
