Visit to Bill Terry's archery collection

On 15 November 2021 a small group of Fletchers, led by the Master, had the privilege of visiting Bill Terry's personal collection of archery equipment and ephemera at his home in West Kent.

The house is purpose-built and has been much extended to create a most impressive museum containing the collection he has built up over 70 years and we only saw under half, all beautifully displayed. His knowledge of the collection is encyclopaedic and he was most gracious and generous with his welcome and hospitality. He hopes very much that the Fletchers will visit him again in the Spring and perhaps take advantage of using the archery field adjacent to the house. Also, he has under construction, a brand new building to house his extensive picture collection and he hopes that it will be ready for us to see then.

Thanks to PM Chris Brown and Liveryman Felicity Brown for this report.
