Croquet Club

Category: Local Groups

Colston Bassett Croquet Club are based at the Cricket Ground off Washpit Lane, adjacent to China Bridge and the River Smite. The Croquet Club are a social group, offering an opportunity to enjoy social croquet in an idyllic venue during the summer months.

The ground sits in the valley below Colston Bassett Hall Grounds and St Mary’s Church and can be accessed both by road (off Washpit Lane) or by footpath from either Church Gate (via the signposted Footpath over Pollards Bridge or from Jubilee Walk off New Road). Washpit Lane connects Church Gate and New Road, and looking over the low parapet of China Bridge the outline remnants of the old wash-pit can still be seen at most times of the year, although this area and even the croquet and cricket ground have also disappeared under winter and spring floods in recent years.

Contact with the Club can be made via the Parish Clerk, who will refer your enquiry on to the appropriate Croquet Club Officials as appropriate.
