Suppliers of archery equipment
Local archery shops
Some general sports shops and fishing-tackle shops sell archery equipment. We advise you against buying from these, since they generally don't know anything about archery. In many cases, their equipment is poor and overpriced. Archery equipment is best bought from archery specialists.
There is just one specialist archery shop in Yorkshire. Fortunately it's a very good one and is within a 40 minute drive of Halifax.
Aardvark Archery is in Farsley, near Pudsey between Leeds and Bradford. Go into Stanningley, drive down Bagley Lane and look for a tower with "Springfield" painted on it - this is Springfield Commercial Centre. Aardvark is signposted from the rear car park.
