Feel the awesome power of one of the most famous weapons from history

Our Long Bow experience days are full of fun and enjoyment as you learn to shoot the infamous Longbow!

Spend a day with Now Strike Archery as we teach you to use an authentic long bow and the history behind it. Feel the power of the weapon that dominated warfare for over 300 years while raising the common man into the upper echelons of infamy and thrusting our steel tipped arrows into the nightmares of our enemies.

Our experience days run selected days throughout the year, with weekends getting filled up quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment.


Have you ever wanted to have a bow that you can really have true ownership over?

Now Strike Archery is proud to offer this exciting course where, over two days and under full tuition, you craft your own longbow.

Starting out with a blank tri-laminate stave you learn to shape the bow using traditional hand tools before tillering to learn what to look for in the bend as you work it to “full compass”.

You then go on to shape and fit the horn nocks before adding an arrow pass and making your own string.

Our experienced bowyers guide you at every step and can cater for all abilities. Lunch is included on both days as well as all the tea/coffee you can drink.

In addition to our “have a go” and events packages, we also offer a quality range of long bows and authentic medieval arrows for sale which are made in house using traditional tools and methods.


Learn to make arrows the traditional way!

This one day course will take you through making your own arrow shafts by hand from straight grained ash. You will learn how to insert horn for strength before cutting the nock.

Our instructors will then teach you the secrets of fletching using rabbit skin glue, shaping the feathers into fletchings and then whipping them to the shaft.

Lunch is included and you can take home as many arrows as you can make in the day.

Courses are tailored to individual needs, so make sure to let us know if you want to make heavy military arrows or lighter but authentic looking re-enactment arrows.
