Welcome to the Grouse website.
Clay target shooting has now become one of Britain's most popular sports. Have you tried it?
Clay shooting has long held a magical fascination for many people but the opportunity to try this thrilling sport had eluded them, usually thinking that a shotgun license is required or that cost would be prohibitive. Under current firearms legislation (Police section 11.6) this is not the case and clay shooting has enjoyed a great increase in popularity in recent years both in the form of family leisure and corporate promotions.
Shooting first began at the "Grouse" in 1978.
The ground is open for English Sporting on Sundays from 9:30am until 12 noon, with all traps fully automated and using biodegradable clays. The shoot is strictly felt/fibre wads only. The shoot offers discounts for veterans and juniors, see Events and Prices for details.
Set in the northwest corner of the Peak Park at Chunal, Glossop, adjacent to the A624 with main road access (no 4x4 required!) on a 30 acre site (see map for full details). The shoot sits 1068ft above sea level and being one of the longest established shooting grounds in Derbyshire the setting could not be finer. Rolling moorland surrounded by a rambling grouse moor create an environment where the sight of a grouse watching the shooters from a dry stone wall is not uncommon.
The Grouse Inn (click here to visit site) opposite the shoot serves morning coffee and breakfast from 10am, and lunches from 12noon. There is ample parking for anyone attending the shoot. The hot food and roaring open fire at the Grouse Inn is a very welcome sight.
During the closed season, (April, May and June), we will be operating a "have a go" clay shoot at the Peak Gateway Leisure club www.peakgateway.com Keep checking the website for more details.
We also have a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II car, for weddings, parties, engagements or any other occasion ( click here to view ). The car was once owned by Manchester City Legend Francis Lee, please call for details, special discount for shooters.
Look forward to seeing you soon!
