Did not realise that the day would be so interesting.
Great to be shown how to use a Long Bow and great to find out about some of the history behind the usefulness of the bow. Excellent day.

Really great day and brilliantly run! The instruction was fantastic and by the end of the day I was hitting a 5inch target from 75 yards… twice! Also a really good twist to a typical archery experience is learning about the history of the longbow.

Had a really great day out doing Longbow. It was a fun day full of games and lots of shooting. The group size was fairly small so we all got to do a lot of shooting. Adam was also brilliant with his stories which added lots of background to the medieval aspect of the day. Would definitely do this again!

Weather was raining but this was still an amazing and fun experience. The ppl in out group were all fun and friendly and our instructor John was helpful and welcoming to us all throughout the day. At first though 5 hours may be a bit long but it ‘flew’ by really quickly (pardon the pun)
Would definitely recommend the Long Bow experience day. Great for couples to both do 🙂

Great day of archery in the beautiful Essex countryside, with fantastic instructor imparting a running history of the English Longbow alongside practical use of a fabulous Yew Longbow. Thoroughly recommended !!!
