Lodsworth picture

I REFER to last week’s article about the history of sport in Lodsworth and must point out one fundamental error, since the photograph of the Bishop of London playing stoolball was not taken in Lodsworth.

The photograph itself was taken from the History of Sussex Stoolball by MS Russell-Goggs and was originally published in the Sussex County Magazine in 1928.

The illustration was included during the presentation when I was making a generic reference to the game of stoolball and its origins.
