In more recent years the Castle has been used regularly as a location for Films and TV (e.g. Netflix's award winning series "The Crown").

I've been shooting at the castle.(not game).... Was on a day when we shot a multi black powder cannon salute off the terrace to celebrate an important birthday in the bos's family. ,,,, (His son's 21st I think). In the days when John Higgs was still with us (MLAGB & Epperstone range). Happy memories!
Great fun , great place, good people!

I'm told, don't know, but believe it 100% true that at Belvoir the guns must not see the beaters. That the beaters have to stay in whatever wood it is they are driving and can't come out such that the guns then see them. A bit odd but worth bearing in mind if you are applying for this position that things done at X may not be done the same at Y.
