The Bowmen of Backworth use a number of venues (see below), but our main base is at Backworth Miners' Welfare and this is where we practice outdoors on the field.


Our indoor venues are Kings Priory School in Tynemouth and East End Youth & Community Centre in North Shields.

Backworth Field

Backworth Miners' Welfare, Backworth Hall, Station Road, Backworth, Tyne and Wear, NE27 0AH

To reach the archery field:

  • enter the grounds of Backworth Hall (please observe the speed limit)
  • continue past the front of the hall and turn LEFT into the Cinder Park
  • please use this car park - overspill parking is available 40m to the left

Archers with disabilities can park on the field, rather than in the car park, by prior arrangement. Please note: this facility does not have a disabled toilet.
