    Thimbleby Shooting Ground

    It’s a great setting and a nice place to spend a Saturday morning, but....... The layout rarely changes, a slight variation every six weeks if your lucky. As Figgy has mentioned the morning sun, especially through the autumn and winter months can write off 50% of the stands. The warren, rabbit targets, has obvious drainage problems as the slightest bit of rain and it’s closed. Despite this I still go weekly and the bacon butties are great!

    Fantastic offer, shame you’re nearly 4 hours away.

    Small woodland shooting

    It is a copse! One of the reasons to buy the copse/tiny wood is somewhere to let my grandchildren run feral every now and again. Shooting would have been a nice bonus.
  4. Following a recent thread on this forum I have been looking at purchasing a small piece of woodland. My budget is around £20k and for this price I'm in the couple of acres bracket. My questions is, is any kind of walked up shooting, with a shotgun, possible on only 2 acres? The wood I have looked at is part of a larger wood that has been broken up and purchased by god knows who. I'm taking a worst case approach and assuming the surrounding woods will have been purchased by anti shooting types. There is some farm land on one boundary which I'm also assuming the farmer will not mind possible shot/birds falling on his land if I discuss this with him. Has anyone got any experience of this situation?

    Electrical certificate

    If there is a problem, which there might not be just ask the electrician who carried out the work to notify it to building control through their registration scheme.

    Electrical certificate

    They will want the certificate of building control notification. This may be an NICEIC certificate or may not be. The Niceic cettificate you have may be a minor works, installation or inspection cert. what does your certificate say on it?
