Welcome to the Northern England Falconry Club

The Northern England Falconry Club was founded in 1967 by a small group of falconer’s In the Yorkshire area, they wanted to supply a meeting place for like-minded people to gather and discuss the sport they loved.

A suitable venue for monthly meetings was found, (the Royal Hotel-Pudsey) a committee was elected and a constitution drawn up. The founder members were soon joined by other keen falconry enthusiasts and the NEFC was born.

Our meetings are open to all, so whether your experience is vast or very little you will be made welcome at the N. E. F. C.

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at The Commercial Railway Inn, Gooder Lane, Brighouse, HD6 1HA. We have a separate room which is vital for the meetings, guest speakers and our workshops. We start the evening  at 8.PM with club business, this deals with issues concerning the club or Falconry in general and to pass on any relevant news or information to our members. Our workshops are for newcomers to the sport and cover anything from caring for your hawk, housing, nutrition, fitting furniture to the more advanced hood making. These workshops are run by more experienced members and will really assist anyone who hasn't done this first hand.

We usually have several guest speakers throughout the year, this season we have had representatives from the Hawk board, a top avian vet and a head game keeper who manages a grouse moor.  All gave first class presentations that members found interesting and informative. See our Events page for more forthcoming guest speakers.


Members past, present and new came together with landowners in the picturesque village of Kilnsey in North Yorkshire, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the North of England Falconry club.
