Clay Shooting at Mickley Hall Shooting School

Welcome to our Shooting School website, our ground features a fantastic clay pigeon shooting venue, just outside Nantwich in rural South Cheshire.

The mission that we have set ourselves is a challenging one; to establish a venue that is attractive to the seasoned “pro”, with interesting targets and regular competitions, whilst being welcoming and sensitive to the needs of the novice shooter, who may never have picked up a gun before, but who has a wish to learn this endlessly fascinating sport.

Our shooting ground has been designed with much thought given to the sometimes competing needs of the beginner and the serious competition shooter. Covered stands ensure that nobody’s fun need be spoiled by a rainy day, and stoned pathways between the stands means that you can leave your “wellies” at home.

A varied mixture of ponds, open pasture land and wooded areas means that you are always very close to nature, with a wealth of local wildlife often on show.Our ground has the advantage of being just 3 miles away from the busy town of Nantwich, yet is set amongst typically beautiful South Cheshire farmland. We believe that a major part of the attraction of clay-shooting is its strong association with the countryside and we are very proud of the wildlife that co-exists with us on our shooting ground.

The approach to the ground is a long farm track which eventually opens out into our car park, with parking for up to 80 cars. Immediately on your right as you drive onto the Car Park you will see our luxury club-house. All visitors must report here on arriving at the ground in order to register for shooting or for their event.

We currently offer an English Sporting layout offering a challenging (and ever-changing) variety of targets to suit all abilities with 4 traps per stand. For private parties we can usually customise the targets on offer to suit specific requirements.

We also have a dedicated DTL (Down The Line) layout offering regulation targets in this discipline. In the coming months we will be hosting a series of events and competitions specifically for fans of DTL.

All of our stands incorporate a high level of acoustic protection in order to minimise our environmental impact. Most are fully covered to protect shooters from the elements when they are shooting or waiting to shoot.
