Wold Farm has hundreds of targets for the airgunner to shoot, and if you come on one of their open days you’ll be able to get in for free.
Wold Farm, which is renowned for its airgun shooting and fishing, has undergone a major refurbishment – and it’s marking the occasion with two open days where members of the public can come and have a look round for free and try out some optics from Hawke and rifles from Air Arms.
The open days are being held on the weekend of 14-15 August, and shooters will be able to see Wold Farm’s dedicated zeroing range as well as its multiple-lane plinking range with covered and uncovered firing points, allowing for sitting, standing, kneeling or prone shooting.
Hawke will have a comprehensive range of optics and accessories for the airgun enthusiast as well as newcomers, and Air Arms rifles will be available for use on the ranges.
There’s also a Woodland Walk Course, which offers hundreds of targets, plus an assortment of targets that have been set out on a lake. These move in the breeze, bringing a new challenge and dimension to air rifle shooting.
And if you like what you see, Wold offers a membership programme that will be discounted on the open days. Membership will save you money if you intend to use the facility on a regular basis, as well as other benefits, but you’re also welcome to sign in as a guest if you only intend to visit occasionally.
All shooters are welcome, whatever their level of experience, and staff will be more than happy to advise and help in any way they can. Taster sessions, gun hire and tuition are available on request, and the site caters for people with disabilities.
Meanwhile, Wold Farm’s fishing lakes are set in 70 acres of beautiful mature woodland dating back hundreds of years. This is an exclusive estate that’s open for match, specimen and pleasure fishing all year round. The lakes are well stocked with species including tench, bream, roach, rudd, barbel, chub and carp.
Wold Farm is based on the borders of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire next to the village of Podington. Visit woldfarm.co.uk to find out more or call 079 7400 0230.
