I live about a mile as the crow flies from the Dowry Hill (Groby) rifle club. There's a feeder road onto the M1 between us so its not exactly "quiet".
Suffice it to say that I can hear a lot of the weekend events there - whether "real" firearms or airguns.
The club has existed since the 1930s but there's no way they'd get planning permission for even an external airgun range now (if it was a greenfield site) due to noise complaints.
Best of luck.
In respect of the above comments, we at Dowry Hill were very surprised to read your comments that there could be a noise related issue concerning activities at our Club.
We have a very positive and supportive relationship with the local community and we welcome you to the Club to discuss any concerns you may have.
