The Palm Sunday Archers

The Palm Sunday Archers are an enthusiastic group who meet once a month at the Crooked Billet public house (full address – Wakefield Road, Saxton, Tadcaster, West Yorkshire, LS24 9QN Telephone: (01937) 557389). We are part of the Towton Battlefield Society, and our aim is to preserve the skills and craft of the traditional longbow, a weapon that has helped forge English history.
You do not have to be a member to attend. Just turn up and our experienced archers will be on hand to coach beginners in a safe environment. That way you can determine whether archery is for you. All ages are welcome. We have specially adapted bows for children and full-size bows for those who want to realise their childhood dreams of becoming a budding Robin Hood. We’re sure you will enjoy the fresh air, exercise and companionship.

Meetings open at 9:00 am
