A really enjoyable Sunday afternoon archery clout shoot at the Naseby Battlefield site.
Clout shooting is where the target is at the limit of your bow’s reach, and hence you are ‘arching’ and shooting at roughly 45 degrees in order to reach your target. The target is usually a flag, and scoring is obtained by an arrows distance from the flag,
The results, which will count towards the Archer of Wolfage Manor title, are:
BAYARD RANGE (Kids Target, 47 paces)
COBHAM RANGE ( Mid Range target, 84 paces)
DOUGLAS RANGE (Long range target, 112 paces)

It was a really enjoyable day, some great shooting, and we were lucky with the weather until a downpour brought proceedings to a close.
Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to all those who took part.
