East Layton Quoits and Social Club
East Layton Quoits and Social Club
Quoits seems a very popular local sport, requiring a lot less space than a cricket pitch, and usually associated with evenings in close proximity to a public house. Here it comes with its own social club, which is perhaps more organised than most of their visiting teams get at home.

Quoits is a major source of noise pollution several nights a week during summer with an incessant but irregular series of loud "Clink" and "Clunk" or sometimes "Thud" sounds which penetrate one's concentration far more effectively than the hubbub of conversation. It's not usually practised as a floodlit sport, nor in the daytime, so peace reigns during the winter. In East Layton, at least, the facility provided for the pastime does come with its own car parking which avoids the other problem experienced in many local villages - that of several dozen cars randomly parked in everyone's way.
