Bat and Trap

This traditionally English game, played with a bat and a ball and a "trap" that closely resembles a shoe mould, is a strange mixture of cricket and baseball. It looks difficult, but the rules ( included) are simple and can be creatively changed to meet the requirements of the participants. This is one of our most popular outside games and it is now available for sale to museums, living history sites and the general public.
