We Are Back

Apologies to all our customers whilst our webpage has been offline. Whilst Lesley helped set up the business in 2012, she soon returned to her education career and so the day to day running of the business along with the manufacturing of bows, arrows and leatherwork, bow stands and other items is down to me.

Busy manufacturing to order, I hadn’t taken the website down for updating since starting up so it was due a review. Time seems so limited. Sorry for the inconvenience but look forward to catching up with many of our regular customers shortly. Marc

novelThe Longbow Girl - Award Winning Novel

A good friend of mine and terrific author, Linda Davies has created a rollicking young adult novel called ‘Longbow Girl’. Check it out at http://www.longbowgirl.com/.

“Merry Owen is desperate for her family to stay on their struggling farm in Wales, in the shadow of the Black Castle, owned by the de Courcys who have been enemies of Merry's family for generations. Skilled in the family tradition of archery, Merry is happiest when out riding - but when she finds an overturned tree and a buried chest containing an ancient Welsh text, it leads her into a past filled with treasure, secrets and untold danger”

A great read written by someone who understands the longbow. Available from September. Find more about Linda Davies at www.lindadavies.com
