Somerset, and particularly the Isle of Avalon area, has a long and ancient association with archery.  The Meare Heath Bow was found in peat working in 1961 and has been dated to approximately 2700BC in the Middle Neolithic period.  Our club was formed in 2013 and is representative of the current resurgence in Archery in recent years.
