Quekett Road

Description

An overgrown lane surrounded by thick hedgerows.

Quekett Road has changed little since the outbreak, except that different balls are used.

History

One of the oldest roads in Malton, Quekett Road's name derives from an Old French word meaning 'gate' (like modern French's 'guichet'): a word which gives us the modern English 'wicket'.

Medieval shepherds would herd their flocks along this bucolic route, from their pastures to the south to the village markets. Once the sheep were safely penned, possibly near St Hormisdas's Church, the shepherds would relax with a few pints of foaming ale and play ye pastyme in whyche een manne hurleth an balle to-wards an quekett, onde an-other manne mote y-hitte ye balle, yea, e'en untoe ye furtheste reche of yonder feldes. It is thought by sports historians that this describes a rudimentary form of what is now known as 'cricket'.

Modern locals can still be seen throwing things at each other: severed heads, various glands and so on.
