More than 130 archers gathered at the Mount Stewart estate in Northern Ireland for the 2019 All British and Open Senior and Junior Field Archery Championships – and the results were just as spectacular as the surroundings.

The guest of honour was Olympic and Commonwealth champion, 1972 Sports Personality of the Year and sports ambassador Dame Mary Peters. She watched some of the finest international field athletes tackle the two-day Arrowhead-status event at the National Trust-owned property.

The athletes shot a World Archery round of 24 marked and 24 unmarked targets over the two days. The tournament also featured white peg categories, shorter distances to encourage participation. Find out more here. In the end, the 2019 winners were:
