Diggle National PR Competition
Diggle Ranges

Held at the Diggle Ranges in a picturesque valley, high up in the Pennines (900 ft. above sea level) near Oldham. The ranges offer shooting from distances of less than 100yrds. out to 1000yrds.

Due to the nature of the wild natural landscape, many of the firing points are staggered and at slightly different heights, adding to the challenge.
