Created By: Cheltenham Local History Society


The Cheltenham Archers were founded in 1857 by Horace Ford, the father of modern archery.

Membership of the Archers included Alice Blanche Legh who was the Champion Archer of Great Britain a record-breaking 23 times from 1899-1922 and Queenie Newell, who won a gold medal at the 1908 London Olympics.

Until 1934, the archers stored their target bosses under the bandstand (Point of Interest 12) when they had to move following the opening of Montpellier Gardens to the general public.
