UPDATE: 15th May 2020

Following the CPSA announcement dated 13th May 2020 we are pleased to hear that the shooting industry can open with caution. We thank our governing body for liasing with Government to get clarity on the matter. However this still doesn't mean Nuthampstead Shooting Ground will be reopening anytime soon. Even though all plans are in place to try and open cautiously and safely we feel that it is still too soon for our customers and business to start. There will be a number of disappointed readers who we can only hope understand our concerns. Our view is that we want to open when the time is right and customers have a better piece of mind and enjoy their shooting. We will be making sure that we have the best strategy in place to make your visit as safe and sensible as possible.

Some future measures will include; 

  • Limited participants at allocated times (no more than 2 people must meet from separate households)
  • Small time allocations
  • Very limited range space and facilities (only automated layouts and toilets)
  • Strict cleaning regime on all public areas
  • Hazard tape and signage
  • Social distancing rules apply (please make yourself aware of these before visiting)
  • Do not visit if you or a member of your household has any symptoms.


UPDATE: 2nd May 2020

Still no further signs of reopening. Please follow government guidelines and stay safe. The shooting ground will hopefully re-open by June.

UPDATE: 10th April 2020

With the ongoing pandemic of Covid 19, Nuthampstead Shooting Ground will remain closed until further notice. Our website calendar shows us closed until 6th May 2020 but this may change again nearer to that date. We hope all our customers and their families are well and we look forward to seeing you as soon as safely possible.


UPDATE: 21st March 2020

Nuthampstead Shooting Ground is now temporarily closed until further notice. To hope that our customers can understand the situation we are in and keep away from the spread of the virus. We hope that this response will make a small contribution to the control of the situation that the country faces. 


UPDATE: 20th March 2020 

In light of this afternoon's announcement bu the UK government we have made the decision to open the ranges only during opening times. This will involve customers still being able to shoot but only being able to access the toilet facilities and not the rest of the clubhouse.

Takeaway food an drinks will be supplied through a "hatch" system as well as any cartridges and credit for clays.

We hope that this system will survice for as long as we are allowed. We apologise to all our customers for this inconvienience but we are taking this outbreak very seriously and want to keep all customers and families safe.


18th March 2020

Due to developments in Covid-19, Nuthampstead Shooting Ground will be putting measures in place to ensure the safety of all staff, customers and visitors.

We are resuming with our usual opening hours - Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am-4pm.

We regret to inform you that any major competitions and Sundays are having to be cancelled until after 12th April 2020. For further information visit British Shooting or BICTSF website. Additional information for other events are on the CPSA website.

Please be aware that in a very uncertain time our position is most likely to change so please use this website and our Facebook page for updates.

We politely request that the shooting community respect the safety of the vunerable categories and use hand wash and sanitiser at the Shooting Ground or bring your own provisions. If you are feeling unwell or been in contact with people of symptoms then follow government guidelines and not visit us. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee everyone's safety from this virus and every individual should take responsibility to stop the spread. 

We hope that customers can understand the situation our business is in and we will endevour to do our best to continue operations.

We wish everyone and their families health and well-being in these strange and difficult times.

Ed and Nicola Barker
