Where We Shoot



River Alde
Eleven miles of the tidal river Alde & Ore from Orford to Snape are leased by the club from the Crown Estate, offering challenging and exciting wildfowling opportunity, much of it accessible only by boat.

Aldeburgh Town Marsh
The Town marshes come into their own late in the autumn, when they provide the chance for exciting wigeon decoying.

Aldeburgh Town Ponds
The Town Ponds are the site of a major conservation project by the club. A series of silted-up and overgrown ponds has been cleaned out and open water restored to improve habitat for nesting waders and overwintering wildfowl. The project has received major grants from both local and national funding bodies.

Ferry Farm marshes
These salt marshes on the south bank of the river Alde offer wildfowling opportunity with foot access for those without a boat. They intersect a number of regular goose flight lines.

Lantern Marsh
This extensive area, leased from the National Trust, offers challenging and remote wildfowling for those prepared to walk the famous shingle bank south from Aldeburgh. In a north-easterly blow, Lantern marsh can provide exceptional wildfowling.

Barthorpes Creek
This secretive area lies towards the mouth of the River Ore and consists of narrow tidal channels lined with salt marsh.

For those who enjoy the challenge of inland wildfowling, the club owns grazing marshes in the Waveney valley at Geldeston. In late autumn and winter when the marshes are in flood, they are a magnet to large numbers of mallard, teal and wigeon.
