Unleash the Excitement: Black Powder Shooting and Cannon Firing Stag Parties at our country estate

Welcome to Hard Days Knight’s private country estate, the ultimate destination for traditional country sports in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Are you ready to take a step back in time and embrace the thrill of black powder clay shooting? Prepare for a stag party experience like no other!

Before the invention of smokeless cartridges, black powder was the go-to propellant for shotguns. And now, we’re bringing back that classic shooting experience. But don’t worry, you won’t need tweed jackets or deerstalker hats to participate. This is a totally unique activity that will transport you to a bygone era.

Imagine yourself standing on our picturesque estate grounds, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Derbyshire. Feel the weight of a traditional black powder shotgun in your hands as you learn the art of muzzle loading and firing. The air fills with clouds of gun smoke, creating an atmosphere that not only enhances the experience but also makes for incredible photo opportunities.

With 20 shots each, including 15 breech (cartridge) loads and 5 traditional muzzle loads, you’ll have plenty of chances to test your skills. Take aim from four different shooting stands and witness the exhilaration of smashing clays the old-fashioned way. This is clay pigeon shooting at its finest.

For those who crave an extra level of excitement, we have something truly extraordinary. Imagine the thunderous boom of a real, live 1/6th scale cannon from the legendary HMS Victory. Step up to the challenge as each team gets the opportunity to fire the cannon two to three times.

Loaded with grapeshot .577 musket balls (around a dozen per charge), your objective is simple – hit the target closest to the French flagship. Get ready to make history and show off your marksmanship skills.

At Hard Days Knight, we take pride in providing a stag party experience that’s second to none. With our black powder clay shooting and cannon firing activities, you’ll immerse yourself in the rich traditions of country sports while enjoying the breathtaking landscapes of Derbyshire.

It’s time to make your stag party unforgettable. Book your adventure today and get ready for an explosive and exhilarating experience that will exceed all expectations. BOOOOM! Clay pigeon shooting has never been this thrilling.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben
