    It’s been done on here a few times and despite being easy to get to this abandoned old cricket pavilion in the North Norfolk village of Guist has always been something I have wanted to see. There’s not much history out there on this predominantly wooden two story pavilion that sit on the edge of some woods next to a grounds of a large manor house. Apparently it was built around 1907 possibly used up until the 1930s. Maps from the mid1970’s show a track leading up to the pavilion so it may have been used perhaps for storage up until around then. Anyhow…on with the pix.

    Here it is poking out the trees:

    And now over the barbed wire (first snagging my thigh!) and round the back:

    The ground floor is pretty good nick-wise:

    Well, apart from the toilet that is:

    And the windows…

    Think we’ll give up-stairs a miss!

    Poor, lonely coat-hooks. No cricket whites have been hung on these for a while:
