Description

It was once said that "if Mr. Holland is unable to teach a man to shoot then no-one can". This sentiment is every bit as true today as it was 100 years ago.

Holland & Holland started trading in 1835 in Holborn, London, manufacturing the best English guns and rifles. By the late 1980s the company was setting new standards of excellence, entering and winning every category in The Field Magazine's rifle trials, and trademarking "The Royal" action, one of the most famous sidelock actions of all time.

This reputation has been carried forward to the present day, as evidenced by Holland & Holland's accolade as the only gunmaker to hold a British Royal Warrant. The first was awarded in 1963, when they became rifle makers for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. A second warrant to HRH The Prince of Wales followed more recently.

It was not long after Holland & Holland's formation that they realised producing an extensive range of guns was no good without the means to test them; so, in 1880, their first shooting grounds were established. Whilst still a centre for testing, today the shooting grounds are used primarily as a teaching venue, with customers travelling from far and wide to benefit from the expertise of Holland & Holland's celebrated instructors.

The shooting grounds are run by Steve Denny, one of the country's foremost instructors and one of the best respected names in clay shooting. With over 100 years experience between the instructors, some of whom were trained by Ken Davies (arguably the world's best known shooting instructor), Holland & Holland are justly famous throughout the world for the quality of their tuition.

Since 1932, the shooting grounds have been located in Northwood, Middlesex, where they still remain today. The grounds host over 50 different sporting stands set in realistic surroundings, making for a London clay pigeon shooting gift that is as exhilarating as it is educational. Shooters will find themselves truly tested with an astounding array of speeds and angles, rather than purely distance shots.

Although situated just 17 miles from Central London, the tranquil surroundings feel much further afield. Superb access is afforded to main transport routes such as the M40, M25, and the London Underground.

Reviews

  • Really Informative

    We recently visited Holland and Holland's shooting grounds in Rickmansworth, and had an excellent day. For someone who had never held a shotgun before, it was a fantastic experience. The instructors were helpful, and the grounds were lovely. It was a charity event I attended, and I can say that we were treated as well as we could have been....
