    Fields ?

    It is a small bore ground / shotgun ground . great for them , lousy for us . the only ground i have ever shot at that is worse , is doppers ground at MAD in the open part . and when you get around the back on the banking . you will be lucky to get one out of two . nasty ??? HOLLY:):D

    Shot there once before and got a good kicking from the sun and wind.

    Best advice is to wear a light long sleeved shirt and keep the collar up. Take plenty of sun cream, water and a good hat.

    Can't help with the wind :(
