The Grange Estate is located in the Candover and Upper Itchen valleys, east of Winchester. The estate comprises of historic parkland, water-meadows and rolling chalk downland. Downland valleys, traditional wooded drives and the classic partridge terrain of high hedges and chalk valleys symbolise what shooting in the South is all about. 

The Grange is also the principal venue for Grange Park Opera. The ground has an interesting sporting pedigree since the Grange was the home of the 5th Lord Ashburton who was a noted Edwardian shot and contemporary of Lords Ripon and Walsingham. 

Lunch is put on at Mark Baring’s home and is a relaxed affair - the estate has a warm uncommercial feel about it, perfect for groups of friends looking for good days in the field.
