Agincourt Volley

     These archers were taking part in a tournament organised by Panda Bowmen of Bramhope, the shooting ground is actually on the outskirts of Leeds, but a small number of the archers were from Bronte Archers in Bradford.  The type of bow being used is the traditional English longbow which requires an awful lot of skill and practise to be used accurately (I know, I've tried it and I gave up).  The picture was taken at the end of the tournament where the participants gather on the shooting line and release their arrows simultaneously which is known as an Agincourt Volley.
