Welcome to the Banbury Chestnuts Website



The Banbury Chestnuts is located in the Heart of Banbury, just up from the famous Banbury Cross and Statue of the Fine Lady upon her White Horse. We are adjacent to Peoples Park and just behind the Labour Club on West Bar.

We welcome new members of all ages - so please come down to see us.




The Banbury Chestnuts is one of the oldest clubs in

the country and can trace its History right back to 1554.


We are believed to be the only club in Oxfordshire

to be founder members of all the mens's outdoor bowling associations.


It is with pride that we should remember that our Club was there at the beginning and helped to lay down the laws which all other bowlers now play by.


Please see our History page for fuller details.
