Small but perfectly formed
West Kent Shooting School is set in 20 acres of partially wooded ground close to Tonbridge. This is a family run business begun by Patrick and Barbara Lynch with their son Michael in 1974 and currently run by Michael and his wife Gillian. The ground is well known for offering ZZ (helice) birds as well as conventional clays. Though relatively compact, it offers one of the most comprehensive range of clay-pigeon shooting facilities in south-east England.
West Kent offers good hospitality and a friendly, intimate, atmosphere. The English sporting layout offers more than 100 combinations of targets, including a 100ft high tower. There is also an English skeet layout. West Kent is the home to the British Helice Team and has held the Helice British Grand Prix for 30 years.
Lessons cost £75 per hour excluding clays. The ground operates an automated clay system. Non-members pay £15.50 per 50 clays, members £13.50. Gunfitting costs £95.
