Shalden Clay Pigeon Shooting

Tucked away in a picturesque valley on the edge of Exmoor, Shalden Shooting School offers coaching for individuals or groups of up to 30 people. All ages and abilities are welcome and actually, it doesn't matter if you have no experience at all. They supply all the equipment and because they have plenty of instructors there won't be much (if any) standing around twiddling your thumbs; you don't even need to worry if you get lost in the lanes on the way there because if you give them a call they'll send someone out to meet you, and what's more, they can even arrange lunch in a local pub.
