1920 Bowls Green

On this map (click on the link) the Ruislip Bowls Club green is situated closest to the north side of Wood Lane. Note here the footpath from Wood Lane to Kingsend Avenue which is to the west side of the Tennis and Bowls Club. The footpath was constructed and the Tennis Courts and Bowls Green were built in approximately 1920 by Ruislip Manor Ltd.

The footpath still exists adjacent to Wood Lane Medical Centre.

Below is my sketch of how footprint for the two grounds had been implemented.
