Wales / Bristol clay ground

    Recommended Posts

    My brother in laws licence has just come through so he will be looking for clay grounds in the South Wales area. 

    I am also in the Bristol area and somewhere that we could both go would be ideal. 

    Currently we have been heading down to Mendip which is a lovely ground, but insist you must use their carts which are like shooting confetti! 

    Any recommendations for ground and possibly even who to see for lessons? 

    Thanks

    Brookbank is good. Had a lesson there once with the blonde girl who shoots for the UK olympic team, Abbey something?

    Seems that Treetops in Wales has closed down, shame, it was good a while back.

    I’m heading to brook bank tomorrow for the first time. Useually go to mendip on a Sunday or Woodspring clay shoot on every other Saturday. Can be found on Facebook near Weston super mare, friendly and cheap they sell Fiocchi carts which I like to use.

    I used to enjoy shooting there too but found the chap that ran it was a bit arsey at times, especially towards the end and the layout didn't change very often. Seem to remember he put his pension fund into the business so that would probably explain his demeanour. That said, it's never good to see a ground close like that.

    I’ve been there a few times and it’s a nice friendly shoot with some good variable targets.

    Theres also this ground:

    I’m pretty sure they have a non-coached shoot once a month, but might be worth a quick phone call to check. Being in Lydney it’s only a quick nip along from South Wales.

    Lady’s wood is a very nice ground but it will set you back £75 for a 100 bird practice round 

    Bloody hell!!!! How much???? 100 at South Wales 2000 is £30!

    One of those places that they turn up to shoot clays in full tweed is it? 🤔
