Front entrance to The Goodwood Hotel in 1933
Seen across New Barn Hill and photographed by my father George Baker during a tour by Berkhamsted Cricket Club. As well as staying at the hotel, there are photographs showing members of the team bathing at Pagham Bay and as a group afterwards, fully dressed. The team also played matches at Littlehampton TQ0302 : Cricket match in progress in 1933 and Basingstoke SU6351 : Cricket match in progress at May's Bounty in 1933. A later photograph shows the team’s home-ground SP9908 : Berkhamsted cricket club ground in 1938. The Goodwood Hotel has historic origins, much of it being located in the old seven acre walled garden, which would have provided vegetables and cut flowers for the House in the 18th and 19th centuries. The site also included an indoor, or ‘royal’ tennis court, as well as the old family inn. The oldest part of the present hotel is the former inn, The Richmond Arms. In 1780 this property was called Waterbeach, recalling that centuries earlier the sea once reached this far. An ancient trench starting beside the lodge gate and running along inside the park may suggest a shore line LinkExternal link
