Long Alley Skittles

One of the great old traditional skittles games of England, the play of Long Alley Skittles is largely restricted to the counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. The game's primary characteristic is that the large cheeses must bounce just once before crashing into the pins and, where the unique barrel shaped cheeses are used, the skilful player can can thus confer some unusual angles of attack.

Leicestershire Long Alley Pins & Cheeses in Purpleheart & Lignum Vitae

The pins available below are made by an experienced turner in an appropriate hardwood suitably dried for the purpose. The barrel cheeses are made from Lignum Vitae, a very heavy, self lubricating wood - the hardest wood known to man. The base of each pin is strengthened with a metal ferrel.

Please note that the picture shows pins made from Purpleheart wood. Our turner can't get hold of this timber any longer so your pins will not be this colour. From mid 2009, the pins will be made from Rubberwood or from some other wood that will probably be lighter in colour.

Pins are approximately 85 x 360mm, kingpins 420 x 85mm and cheeses measure approximately 135 x 100mm (6 x 4 inch). NOTE: These pins are supplied untreated so that people can deal with them in the way they wish. The most common treatment is to soak the pins in Linseed oil for up to a week, before beginning to play with them and this is what Masters Traditional Games recommends.
