  • Leigh Manor

    looking across at the 'Fort ' drive


Leigh Manor is a sporting gem set in a picturesque landscape nestled under the famous Callow landmark a circlular wood  which can be seen for miles on the Shropshire / Powys borders, this in fact is one of our favourite pheasant drives.

The topography just spells high pheasant with the estate set on the side of the Rea Valley with undulating slopes and dingles cut deep into the valley side to provide stunning scenery and views accross the Shropshire plains below with the top of the shoot being over 1100 feet above sea level.

The woods have undoubtedly been laid out for shooting by David Stacey's family who have owned the estate since 1763. When Clive of India aquired it for his younger brother William, it then passed down the female line to the Bridgemans and then from the 2nd Viscount Bridgeman to his grandson David.

The estate covers some 2,000 acres just west of Minsterley and the opposite side of the valley to Long Mountain.

Until 2002 this was a private shoot reserved for a privileged few.New management has seen the introduction of gamecovers taking advantage of steep slopes and valleys provided by the exciting terrain.More recently partridge have been released on the Whitsburn valley creating a jaw dropping drive Luckley Point where varying targets cross the valley from every angle.  Other classic high pheasant drives include High Coppice. The Manor, Lordstone Wood, Hope Hall, Crabtree gamecover. Upper Luckley, The Roman Fort, The Callow.and Pennies from Heaven.

This is a family run shoot with the organiser and family looking after the guests on the day even the landlord can occasionally be seen picking up discreetly behind the guns. A log cabin in the Manor gardens has been made into a cosy gunroom with a log fire here the guns can be entertained and fed with a nice homely meal to suit their requirements. The estate even has its own local pub 'The Stables '  where scrumptious pub meals can be organised  with local ales served by a log fire.  Guns are normaly greeted with a bacon butty and a steaming mug of coffee on arrival at the gun room.

Thank you all for a fantastic last day of the season (1st February 2016). The very strong wind made the shooting testing and exciting. Lunch was excellent, as was the company.
We hope to be invited this coming season.
Best wishes from Peter, PJ Dickason and Tom Brown (Henley on Thames)

I had the honour of shooting this shoot for the last day of the season (1st February 2016).
We were greeted at the shoot room, where we were invited in for morning coffee and bacon rolls.
We picked pegs and headed off to the first of the 3 morning drives, which with the wind were very challenging.
Lunch was fantastic.
The last of the 2 afternoon drives produced some of the highest birds I have ever witnessed.
A exceptional shoot with great hospitality.
I will definitely return again next season.
Thanks to all involved in the day.
All the best
Mark

Thank you to Steve & his team, what a great days shooting! I was looking for a day to end the season & came across Leigh Manor. Day started with a bacon sandwich & tea before drawing pegs & heading off to the 1st drive, the pheasants didn't hold back on the wind, was sure where I was the wind was so strong, but he'll the birds were high. This set the tone for the day high pheasants & partridge. I also have to say the hospitality was also 2nd to none what a great roast dinner we had cooked for us & the wine was very good also. Again many thank to Steve & his team for a very memorable last day, hope to see you guys next season.

We shot here late january 2012. fantastic days shooting with very testing birds, great hospitality & with a great keeper and a wonderful beating team. fully recommend anyone to shoot there. Thanks Steve & Jay for an amazing day . See you next year

We had a fantastic day on 1st of January 2011 ! What a way to herald in the new year ,wow, the birds of High Coppice were monsters and i think our average on that drive must have been 15 to 1 .Lovely food and a great family feel to the day. Thanks Steve and Jay
