Hello From St.Neots

Recommended Posts

Hey All!

 

New to the forum as I stumbled across looking for information on pigeon shooting days in Cambridgeshire / Bedfordshire area. Is anyone local to me? I shoot clays only at the moment but would be looking to learn about the pigeon shooting scene.

 

Cheers

Welcome to PW.

Many years have passed since I last visited St Neots, but I knew it well at one time, having been born near Stonely.   Back in the 1960s there as a chap (Jervis R Wardley, if I remember rightly) who kept a pub in Brook Street and also did gunsmithing.   The pub had a window where there would always be a few guns on display, and the last time I visited his workshop (accompanying my father, who was having repairs done to a rather complex ejector mechanism on a Hinton S/S), the man showed me a muzzle loading pistol that he had made from scratch.   How times have changed.

Hello mate, usually High Harthay near Brampton or Hillside in Royston.

 

But I'm looking into joining Waresley, that looks close and local!

 

Where do you shoot?
