The first date will be Wednesday 5 June, when the 500-bird day will utilise some of the 15,000-acre Leicestershire estate’s signature drives.

The 19th century castle, which is home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, is just two hours north of London and 10 minutes from Grantham.

The Really Wild Clay Company’s action-packed day includes midday snacks as well as drinks in the castle’s armoury before a sumptuous lunch in the dedicated shoot room.

For guns wishing to make an event of it, accommodation the night before is available at the Manners Arms on the estate.

Price: £285 + VAT per Gun.
