About Us

Gilsans of Yorkshire formally known as Gilsan Sports are a family run business which have been trading for over 30 years. The founder of Gilsan Sports, Gilbert Fenwick, opened the first shop in Leyburn in 1985. In 1993 a second shop based in Richmond opened run by Gilbert's Son, Simon Fenwick, who went on to expand the business further, which brings us where we are today.

Gilsans of Yorkshire are situated in a new 3,500sq ft purpose built, out of town store in Melsonby, North Yorkshire. We are one of the largest gun dealers in the North, we specialise in shotguns and rifles, stocking a wide variety of makes and models. We pride ourselves on being able to offer our customers the widest range in both new and second hand guns as well as offering a large range of shooting clothing, country clothing and accessories.
