New Shoot Near Sheffield?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Not heard a whisper regarding this shoot so if it's not a "best kept secret" it may not be on !!!

 

Hmmm, heard it was something to do with Morris, maybe I've been misinformed?

There's definitely one going on down there but can't find any info. Guns there this Sunday on our way back from The Boar and we've seen signs under the flyover on Westwood Lane directing to it.

A few miles further north than Tankersley, but have any of you chaps done any shoots at Mount Farm Sporting Clays?

 

Based in Woolley Edge, Phil who owns the golf course there often does a number of different events on the neighbouring farm. I was down earlier this month for the first in his winter series FITASC shoots.

 

Phil is a hell of a nice guy and puts on a great shoot and the facilities in the golf clubhouse are top notch.

Any details or a link to this plz??

 

Come off the M1 at J35A and take the A616 towards Stocksbridge. Almost immediately you'll see a layby on the left with a roadside cafe in it. Pull in there, the entrance to the shoot is before you get to the cafe.

Never tried that one I'll have to look into it. Next time you're down give me a shout, it would be nice to meet you for a cuppa or a shoot.

I shall definitely do that, even if not at Mount Farm I intend to do a lot more shoots in England next year.

 

Last time it was a double header, down early in the morning for the fitasc at Phil's and then back up to Morpeth that evening to stay over and shoot Bywell the next day.

 

There is also a local clay shooting club in Woolley Edge as well, but I don't know the name.

Please do, anything around 50 miles from Sheffield is within normal range for me to go shooting so Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Humberside. I've enjoyed our occasional chats on various topics so it would be nice to put a face to the name.

 

There is/was a shoot at Woolley Edge but I was under the impression it had closed, maybe I'm wrong though.

It would be good to put a face to a name and say hello in person.

 

As for the Woolley Edge shoot it was Phil that had pointed out where that shoot happens and he is the chairman or suchlike of their committee, although he is no longer actively involved in the shoot itself, so I assume it is still a going concern.

This shoot is closed, apparently they were operating without planning permission, the local council were conderned regarding the damage that had been done to the woodland wuth tree felling and other issues, appeals were ladged, heard and dismissed, that`s it FINITO.
