Clay Ground

Please find details below for our clay shooting ground at Thimbleby in North Yorkshire.

Founded in 1988 and set in beautiful rolling countryside within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Thimbleby Shooting Ground enjoys an enviable location.

Thimbleby has grown to incorporate a wide range of challenging and entertaining layouts, from simulated high pheasants, crossing partridge, and bolting rabbits that even the experts sometimes miss!

We are the first ground in the UK to exclusively operate state of the art, wireless controlled traps, ensuring clays are consistently delivered. A simple to use card system allows customers to activate the traps whilst keeping track of the clays used. It enables solo shooters to enjoy a round by themselves or for two or more to share, whilst also making it simpler for us to change trap positions, providing more target variety for our regular customers.

The Lodge is where customers often enjoy a cup of tea and bacon buttie (hot food served on weekends only) whilst discussing weighty matters such as shooting clays! It provides simple, comfortable and clean accommodation, with a welcoming atmosphere which is always highly appreciated when the weather turns inclement.

We offer a wide range of cartridges from Hull. Discounts are available for non members for quantities of 250+ and members on all quantities.
