A prized cricket bat signed by the legendary Don Bradman and other cricketing greats has been discovered in a cottage.<br />
<br />
The incredibly rare piece of willow carries the autographs of all the English and Australian players from the 1938 Ashes contest.<br />
<br />
That home series also featured English giants of the game Wally Hammond, Len Hutton, Denis Compton and Bill Edrich.<br />
<br />
The bat was part of a three bat stand which stood at the top of the stairs of a 17th century thatched cottage near Shaftesbury, Dorset.
