Peter, David & Chris Hughes.

The trio are located on the outskirts of a small town called Denbigh in North Wales.

They race into a very difficult hawk infested area surrounded by mountainous terrain with sometimes low cloud cover.
Regardless of this these amazing birds take all these elements in their stride and achieve some outstanding performances.

No corridor racing at these lofts their birds have to break away from the main convoy to fly a dogleg through the mountains and all the time ducking and diving to avoid the lethal claws of the peregrine falcons that constantly patrol this area.

Bob Short Langbury Lofts

Collection of 2014 birds from his M & D Evans Gaby Vandenabeeles bloodlines.

12 months ago Bob decided to move back to his home county of Devon to concentrat on the long distance National/Classic events. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances the property he intended to purchase fell through at the last minute which meant that Bob and his wife had to stay in Worthing until he found another suitable property in that area.

Now 12 months on this are looking good for a move and bob must drastically reduce his team of proven winning Gaby Vandenabeeles and his new sensational De Rauw-Sablon family which have been winning from the word go especially in strong head winds.

Bob invested heavily in this new family and only purchased at great cost the best available to found his new long distance team.

Bob's stock birds have bred hundreds of winners for himself and others.
Highlights from the last few seasons racing these amazing pigeons.
His club sends approx 275 birds and the federation between 2,500 and 3,500 birds.

32 x 1st, 36 X 2nd, 39 x 3rd, 34 x 4th and 30 x 5th, plus many more in the first 10 in Club and Federation.

2010 Young Birds winning 9 x 1st from 9 races a club record and also the young bird averages in the club and federation.

Testimonial: Bob & Ceorgina Short first visited Myrtle Lofts in 2007 and insisted they required the best team of M. & D. Evans pigeons they could possibly purchase from our main breeding lofts, thus ensuring that they obtained youngsters bred from many of our proven breeding pairs. Anyone studying the top performances by Bob & Georgina over the last two years will realise that they have done us very proud and we would have no hesitation in recommending these pigeons to anyone requiring top bloodlines for racing or future stock. We guaranteed Bob & Georgina that these pigeons would breed them winners and the performances achieved for them has proved that fact.'
M. & D. Evans, Myrtle Lofts
