Killerton Cricket

When Sir Richard and Lady Anne passed ownership of the estate to the National Trust, Lady Anne insisted that the cricket pitch be retained in perpetuity as a cricket ground for use by the community.

During our time at Killerton we had the opportunity of playing on the ground. There are a few photos surviving of those times.
