Our History

Shoot that grouse

Clay Pigeon Shooting. The roots of the shooting School date back to 1976, when we used these grounds to deliver shooting tuition to participants of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme; the Essex Shooting School, as we are now know, was formally recognised in 1983. From those early beginnings, Michael Alldis has remained the proprietor and chief instructor to this very day!

Combining the highest possible standards of safety with superb shooting facilities we are able to deliver targets simulating High Driven Pheasant; Grouse; Partridge; Wildfowl; Pigeon; Rabbit; and others. We also have a floodlit skeet range (Olympic and English) and a Ball Trap layout.

For stability and accuracy, traps are mounted on solid concrete bases and supplied with mains electricity. To help you concentrate on honing your skills, and to enable your coach to quickly and easily deliver an appropriate target, fully automatic and radio controlled traps are used throughout the grounds.

Additionally, there is our spacious and comfortable lodge, complete with kitchen, toilet, changing facilities, and the on-site shop. Surfaced paths throughout the grounds enable the facilities to be used in inclement weather without the need for wearing Wellington boots!
