Winstanley Clay Shoot is set within a private estate in Wigan, Lancashire and has been home to a game shoot for centuries. Join us in the gun room from 9am to be greeted by gamekeeper and park manager Joe Wilcock and shoot organiser (and CGUK member!) Rachel Rigby. Enjoy breakfast served by the talents of The Little Green Platter Company, who will also serve a different menu at elevenses. We then set off into the park for the first two drives with complimentary drinks in between, followed by elevenses and further drives in the afternoon. Each drive takes in a different setting and topography within the park for a truly realistic experience. After the shoot you can look forward to indulging in an evening meal prepared by the hand of local artisan pie maker Alex Melling aka Baldy’s Pies. Wigan is famous for pies after all! A choice of three pre-ordered flavours plus trimmings will be offered, including vegan option.
