The ground had a covered shooting point like Pontefract. I don't think it was LNER where they are now either.

I was shooting my old 77K with Simmons 2-7x32 scope and it was the first time I'd seen scopes with big sidewheels and guns with thermometers.

I remember it was bloody hot when I went though! A few shooters complaining of extreme temp shifts in ranging.

Could have been '93 maybe.
Hi Adam,
It was a sports club at Staveley It was held there for a good few years and then held one year at LNER and then Ponte.
