The land was purchased in 1964 on the break up of the Maer Hall estate and comprises approximately fifteen acres and was formerly a sand stone quarry.

There is ample parking space either side of the drive from the main gate up-to the bollards and a picnic area in front of the club house, weather permitting.

Indoor 10 Metres Airgun Range

Pictured in the series of photographs shown below is the newly improved Indoor 10 Metres Airgun Range.

The original Indoor Airgun Range has been extended at both ends.

These extensions give more room inside the range, thus allowing the firing points to be relocated further forward, and also giving an anteroom to the rear - therefore allowing shooters to utilise the anteroom for preparation and storage of equipment prior to, and after, shooting.

As can be seen from the various photographs, the changes have significantly improved the Airgun Range.

Picturesque Views Of The Chipperfield Ranges In Winter

The location of the ranges provide an ideal backdrop for a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy the sport of shooting.   When the sunshine caresses the emerald-green landscape, it is hard to find a more picture-perfect setting.

Even in the chilly depths of winter, as the glistening white carpet of snow covers the sleeping summer scene, you can still enjoy the serene setting of a magical winter-wonderland, as can be seen from the photographs below.
