Cricketing Memories At Broadmoor. - a Memory of Crowthorne.

A fine cricket ground was included within the walls where Bracknell CC played each year. There was a concert party formed from among the inmates that used to give performances in the villages around Crowthorne: the party travelled with a strong force of warders. Just after WWII there was an occasion when a notorious murderer managed to escape and the alarm was sounded. It was powerful enough to be heard over a range of several miles. The escapee was soon recaptured but there was great local concern about the type of person held in Broadmoor.
