Lots of family and district information and of course cricket info! You get to see where the willows grow and how they make cricket bats from scratch. They have their own cricket oval with a picket fence. Lots of memorabilia

We had a coffe and a self guided tour. The paraphernalia that it available to peruse is extraordinary. If one is interested at all in cricket then this is a MUST.

While the cricket ground and the memorabilia were worth seeing, it struck me as a place that had passed its heyday. You might have thought there would be a good display on how bats are made but this was missing, unfortunately.

Met the sixth generation of the property. My horror was that no Australian cricketer, at all, is using Australian willow, no one since Adam Gilgrest. The property cannot afford to sponsor anyone, BUT could not the Australian cricket chip in. It was very interesting to...More
