High Cross Field Archers are a friendly, informal group who meet up for practice shoots most weekends, shoot all styles of bow and take part at many other NFAS club's shoots across the South West and Beyond...
In 2008 & 2009 High Cross Field Archers hosted two main NFAS Open archery events in the May & October of each year on our old site at High Cross Farm, Elkstone.
Due to farming activities we were forced to dismantle the course at High Cross farm in late 2010. We decided to search for a new site and subsequently we were pleased to move to Denfurlong Farm in August 2011. We organised four more open shoots there in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
We moved on from there in the summer of 2013 to our newest site in some of the woods belonging to Manor Farm Chedworth. The Manor Farm Woods are attractive undulating deciduous woodlands. There are many deer in the woods and a large variety of birds and small mammals. We have an agreement to use about 10 acres of woodland much of the year but open shoots from 2015 need to avoid shooting activities on the estate and this means they need to be between March and July. That is spring time anyway so tends to be a warmer time of year. getting shoots into the NFAS shoot calender is another challenge in itself.
The club operates under the rules of the National Field Archery Society. NFAS.
No Animals Were Harmed in the Making of this Website

We do not condone the hunting of animals with bow and arrow, which is illegal in the UK. And while bacon butties are the standard fayre of NFAS field archers, some of us are even vegetarians...
