Run by Pete March, we are a long established small business providing archery for educational, corporate training, team building and fun family or social events. We offer a flexible approach and are not restricted to one site.
We shoot at venues all over the country and we provide a venue finding service if you do not have facilities available. These sites can be anything from a cricket pitch on the village green to a lawn on a country-house estate.
Archery is one of Britain's oldest target sports. As long ago as 1415, at the battle of Agincourt, the British archers, out-numbered by 10 to 1, shot 1,000 arrows per second into the air giving the French nowhere to run. A resounding victory for the British, albeit largely down to the skills and accuracy of the Welsh longbow men from Monmouth!
Today, we can enjoy archery in a more leisurely manner. Archery can be used as a team skill, individual challenge or as a coaching tool and is adaptable for corporate uses, development training and education.
Using modern 'recurve' bows or traditional wooden Long Bows, finger tabs and bracers, the instructor will kit you up and provide you with a bow suitable for your height and strength. It doesn't matter how strong you are, you can be equally accurate as the next person.
Try your hand at Target Archery starting at 15 yards, then experience Clout Archery at 100 yards, which means you will be aiming into the sky! Alternatively, find out what it is like to be the 'hunter gatherer' in Field Archery where you shoot from mixed distances at images of traditional English quarry in the natural habitat of the countryside.
