A short introduction to the history of Moreton in Marsh in relation to Croquet.

The first world cup was held in Moreton and the rules of croquet were first codified in 1866 by Walter Jones Whitmore who lived in Chastleton House, a few miles from Moreton, now owned by The National Trust.

To celebrate the new croquet club in Moreton, raise funds for a clubhouse and publicise the game of croquet, we are arranging a team to walk from Moreton to Chastleton House. The team will play a game of croquet on the lawns of Chastleton House with a group of volunteers and staff, then walk back to Moreton and play a game of croquet at Moreton Croquet Club.

The event will take place on Saturday 16th July. Moreton Croquet Club will be selling teas, coffee, soft drinks along with cakes and scones in the church next to Chastleton House.

We would like to invite croquet players to support this historic event by donating to
