What we know you’ll love about clay pigeon shooting in Derbyshire is the fact that it is a very professional competition-level set up but that doesn’t mean you and your fellow budding hotshots can’t have fun as you line up take aim and fire at those dastardly clay pigeons that shoot across the Peak District skyline. And that’s another advantage of this Derbyshire venue; the elevated position in the valley means you’re shooting clays on the horizon for maximum visibility.
