The old infirmary was transformed into a skittle alley in 1864 and intended to relieve the boredom of the naval pensioners. Hidden underneath the grand buildings of the ORNC, you’ll feel as if you’re taking a step back in time…and, of course, you’ll have the opportunity for a game using wooden practice cannonballs!
Well you would if you got a chance to bowl last year on June 2nd. Hopefully the exhibit will be open again in the future. These are some of the lucky people to have a go.
