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.

Air Weapons Range

If you look closely at the updated panoramic photograph of the Chipperfield Ranges, shown above, you may notice that there is something a little different when compared to the same viewpoint from a few months ago.

Are you still wondering what the recently added construction is that sits between the clubhouse and the outdoor range?

Of course, the mysterious structure is the newly erected 10 Metre Air Weapons Range - what else.

Please keep checking back to this website, as more details and information regarding the air weapons range and it's usage will be announced in due course.

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.
