North West Region

Welcome to the North West Region of the British Falconers’ Club

North West Regional Committee

Chairman – Stuart Mellor


Secretary – Sam Kelly


Treasurer – Doug Parker


Group Representative – Barbara Royle


The North West Region of the British Falconers’ Club meet on the last Tuesday of every month at Briars Hall Country Hotel, situated near Ormskirk in West Lancashire. The meetings are held on an alternate formal/business and informal/social format, and are regularly well attended by a good number of members from around the region.

The North West Region hold a good number of both shortwing and longwing field meetings each season, and hawk on some of the best rabbiting land in the Yorkshire Dales, as well as on outstanding game venues in West Lancashire and Merseyside. Thanks must go to our field meet co-ordinators, Stuart Mellor (shortwings) and Richard Newton (longwings), for securing these venues and organising meetings for our members every year.
