The Bat and Ball Public House, Hambledon, 1908

Photograph showing the Bat and Ball Public House at Hambledon, circa 1908. The pub was formerly known as the Broadhalfpenny Hut and was used as a pavilion by the Hambledon Cricket club in the latter half of the eighteenth century. Broadhalfpenny Down is considered to be the birthplace of modern cricket; hence the importance of the Bat and Ball public house.
