Target About Our Shooting Club

You may have only recently discovered our club but the site itself has a colourful history.

Back in 1912, it started as a base for the Royal Flying Corp which later became the Royal Air Force.

Our site was renowned for Bristol Beau Fighters during the World War II.  Later it became a Bloodhound missile base for surface to air missiles until it closed in 1990 approx.

We have in fact the last range warden as a member of the club who would be more than happy to share his memories with you.

The site was closed 1990/1991 and eventually sold off in parts. Which is where our club originated from.


Over the years the site has gone from strength to strength. We currently have a 25 metre range, 40 metre range and 100 metre tube range (the Tunnel).  We are also in the process of building a western range with many more plans in the pipeline...

In addition to this we offer Clay Pigeon Shooting (mainly sporting, but skeet is also available) on a daily basis. 10am until 4pm (to shoot clays outside of these times please ring on 01472 388984.

There are Club Practical Shotgun competitions nearly every month (UKPSA rules apply). 

Steel plate shoots for anyone interested in something little different are run by a group of our members, The NC Bushwackers

Yeehaa!!!  The British Western Shooting Society (BWSS) run a competition at our club most months. You don't have to be a member to come and have a look if you're feeling a little wild.

If you want target shooting we have many members who enjoy various disciplines of this from Air Rifle and Air Pistol, Rim-fire Rifle and Pistol, Full-bore Rifle, Black Powder Muzzle loading Rifles and Pistols (all still legal) to Target Shotgun with the NTSA (National Target Shotgun Association).

So if any of these activities or events takes your fancy come see us and while you're here try our "famous" NCB Bacon Butties, have a Cuppa and a look at all we have to offer.
