Welcome to the Grouse Shooting Ground

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 9:30 am until 12 noon with hot food and drinks available, and 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.

The Shooting Ground and the Grouse Inn

Set in the northwest corner of the Peak Park at Chunal, Glossop, adjacent to the A624 with main road access (no 4×4 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.

Look forward to seeing you soon!
