This chapter discusses the theme of space. It aims to position the sports and pastimes described in Chapter 6 more firmly within their topographical context. The chapter also discusses these activities using the finer perspective of space. An assessment of how far pressure on space during the early nineteenth-century industrial towns served to constrict the practice of these activities is presented.
