Mary Rose

We are extremely pleased to have been approached by the Royal Armories at Leeds to look at the Mary Bows they have there. As a result of that visit the Armories have commissioned Bickerstaffe Bows to make a replica of the Mary Rose bow. The pictures below are taken from our visit to the Armories.
