Now Strike Archery Ltd

Now Strike Archery Ltd takes its name from the command given by Sir Thomas Erpingham to the archers at Agincourt. When reputedly he threw his marshall's baton high into the air and cried "Now Strike my archers now strike"

Now Strike Archery Ltd is owned and run by Tom Mareschall and Adam Jenkins, both experienced longbowmen and entertainers.

The Emphasis of Now Strike is on fun with history rather that facts and figures although we can do those too! Now Strike is unique in that we enable people to use a yew longbow at our have a go sessions. We also are proud include clients such as the National Trust, English Heritage, Knowsley Council and Pike and Shot Events.

In addition to our "have a go" and events packages, we cater for groups who want to try shooting for fun at our Experience Days or for more serious archers, we offer our popular Master Class days. Our new Stag & Hen packages are extremely popular as are our bespoke Corporate days. If you would like to learn to make your own equipment then we have the courses for you! We are proud to offer bow, arrow making and black smithing courses at the end of which you can take home your finished work.

Further to this we also offer quality bespoke long bows (self and laminate) & authentic medieval arrows for sale which are made in house using traditional tools & methods. Visit our website

Now Strike Archery can supply a number of services including safety checks of your equipment or range set ups for your events. Please ask should you have anything specific in mind.
