Richard Wadge - Club Chairman

 

Our third doctor called Richard and second academic. Richard is an authority on the medieval warbow, having written a number of books on the subject, the latest being “The Arrowstorm”. So if you want to know anything about the longbow and its history, ask Richard.

Richard is also Chairman of The English Warbow Society.

Richard shoots traditional fully fletched arrows with Bodkin piles. The scores were elusive to start with, but of late they are rising fast.
