DescriptionThere has been a cricket club at Englefield since at least 1894. For many years the Englefield Estate employed and housed an army of agricultural workers and many found their way on to the cricket field in the summer. The mainly wooden pavillion was built in 1926 but was extended in the mid 1980's to provide showers and extra changing facilities. With increasing success on the field there are now ambitious plans to extend the pavillion again. The club was used for the filming of parts of the recent adaptation of 'Just William' by the BBC.
DirectionsEnglefield Cricket Club is based in the middle of the grounds of Englefield House close to Junction 12 Theale of the M4 to the west of Reading.

Take the 3rd road on the left signposted to Englefield. This street is the village and stretches for ½ a mile past the school on the left and the garden centre on the right.
