Bramble Bank Cricket Pitch

The Bramble Bank is a triangular sandbar located in the center of the Solent between Calshot in mainland Hampshire, England, and Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Through most of the year, the Bramble forms a patch of unusually shallow water, posing a perilous threat to the sea traffic using the busy strait. Once a year, however, it rises from the depths to become something “quintessentially English.”

Typically in August, during the country’s lowest spring tide, and only then, the Bramble Bank emerges for just short of an hour, providing sports fans with one of the most unusual cricket pitches in the world.
