ABOUT

Rich & Henry

Since young teenagers we've always been heavily involved with the sport. Through years of love and experience, we decided it was time to set ourselves the challenge of running our own shoot. Seven years on, we looked to extend our passion by taking on Kedleston Estate Shoot.

We rear our own birds, pride ourselves in our hospitality and have never lost our passion from all those years ago. Find out more here.

Being experts in the local area, we also know the best places to stay during your visit (along with a few recommendations for the best food!)

Discover Derbyshire.

OUR TEAM

Cunningshot Dog Training-7647.jpg
Walking-gun-2241.jpg

In a relatively short period the Jones brothers have brought together an exciting team to ensure the smooth and efficient running of your shoot day. 

As most guns know there is a small army of people who are often never seen but can be on occasions be heard in the woods and cover crops, they are The Beating Team. 

Look behind you when in the gun line and you will see the Picking Up Team.

In 2020 Rich & Henry brought in one of then UK's top gun dog trainers in Emma-Louise Stevens at Cunningshot Dog Training to develop and train young beaters and handers to work with Rich and Henry to ensure the shoot has on hand the best and brightest in the field who share their willingness to do things differently and to re-establish Kedleston Estate Shoot as one of the premier shoots in the region.

Trevor Kemp

 

The team are outstanding at what they do, but they’re also people I like and trust in equal measure. That makes all the difference.

Alexander Meero 

 

Having contacted Richard Jones at Kedleston re our hosting a charity game shoot I was immediately impressed by his level of knowledge, the questions asked and the complete package he offered. Recommended.

Emily Kirwin

 

As an experienced clay shot but a novice game shot at my first driven day Henry's calming words of wisdom and sense of humour were invaluable. 

Mr & Mrs J Denton

 

A superb day and great fun. The team at the Kedleston Estate Shoot had everything covered.

Cornelius Thomas

 

They did all the hard work and enabled me to concentrate on being the host. Superb!
