On 5th March Pip Bickerstaffe paid a visit to The Longbow Shop
For those that couldn’t make the latest Bickerstaffe demo day we had a slight change in format concentrating more on the mechanics of shooting with some coaching analysis input alongside shooting tips and historic thoughts on all aspects of that greatest of bows – The English Longbow.
Alongside Pip for the day was renowned Warbow archer and expert Simon Stanley who brought some fantastic examples of Yew Longbows including a huge 154lb Warbow. Everyone there was treated to Simon shooting this beast of a bow so take a look at the video below to see just how easy he made that look! Images from the day are also on our blog page. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the feedback has been fantastic.
