Newney Hall Farm

In 2011, with a keen, albeit novice Cirencester student at the helm, the Newney Hall Farm shoot enjoyed a resurgence... of enthusiasm at least!

Armed with very little apart from a noble desire to get out more often with a gun and some mates, the shoot had suitably humble beginnings. The first game book entry read: "5 Pheasants, 1 Woodcock, 1 Hare and 1 Magpie". Subsequently, with much experimentation with ex layers and shooting over little more than 100 acres, bags of 30-50 were regularly enjoyed and a lot of happy memories created.

In 2019 - after several years of learning the hard way, leaving the shoot for a year, re-grouping and re-thinking the six or seven drives the shoot relies upon - we broke the 'century' shooting a mixed bag of 101 with seven guns. Quite the milestone!

Since then, with lots more titillation and an experienced and loyal team of regular beaters, the shoot has been enjoying a rare halcyon period. Last season averaged a bag of 90ish with a line of seven over five days' shooting.

Still running as a small, fun, private shoot, we release 1,100 Japanese second-cross poults and 100 grass reared duck, which are both excellent sport and eating!
