    I lived in Essex until 3 yrs ago, but the info should be good. I'm still in contact with alot of shooting mates there.

    Fingringhoe range (100,200 & 300yds), near Colchester. From memory Herts & Essex Shooting club shoot there regularly - contact them at http://www.haesa.org.uk/

    If further north then try Barton Road range (300&600yds) which is close to Cambridge (not in Essex but actually more convenient to those in North Essex). Bassingbourn Rifle and pistol club shoot there regularly - contact them at http://www.brpc.org.uk/

    There's also Thetford but that can be a right pain in the arse to get access to and is just North East of Cambridge.

    yes ,were moving back to southend area!
    will be a culture shock after 5 years in a log home in north bc,hearing wolves at night ,moose and bear in the yard.
    instead will be hearing chavs at night and police sirens,and the only wildlife will be donkeys on the beach ,LOL

    Well, provided you can pick up some stalking locally you'll be trading moose and wolves for fallow and muntjac.
    All the best for the move mate.

    Conibear,
    If you don't mind me asking, why are you leaving Canada to return to the UK? I had thought the quality of life greater there and am currently trying to budge the wife into considering emigrating there or NZ.
