For established shots, the thrills are even greater; giant towers, simulated game targets and much more that will put your accuracy to the test.

The Shoot

We may be surrounded by 400 acres of gorgeous Lancashire woodland and countryside scenery, but we are more than happy to say you won't want to pull your eyes away from the action to check it out. We aren't just one of the biggest sites in the North West, but we are one of the best too. With everything from gigantic towers to dedicated skeet and UT ranges, we have everything a marksman could possibly want. For the most established shots, we even have simulated game traps, to put your shooting skills to the ultimate test.

Our site has toilets, changing rooms, spectator areas and car parking facilities. Light refreshments are available on the day.

The booking process was simple and straightforward, the staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful and our tutor (Huey?) was an absolute star. A great tutor, very patient and gave us lots of encouragement. The set up at at Eccles was excellent and we all had a really fabulous time. We would highly recommend a visit. Thank you!"
