Respect the Range

Published: 30/04/2021

If you are planning a trip this Bank Holiday, and your trip will include military ranges or training areas –  just a reminder about ‘Respect the Range’. This is the new campaign that encourages everyone, from families and dog walkers, to hikers, green laners, and mountain bikers, to be mindful of the shared lands and make sure they’re using the training areas only when it is safe to do so.

The Defence Training Estate is shared land. It’s where families, locals and other visitors spend time. But it’s also where our armed forces practise live-fire training. It can go from tranquil to treacherous overnight.

Not all areas of the Defence Training Estate are open to the public. So respect the range and to use the land respectfully; follow public access routes, and use the range when and where it is safe to do so.

To find out more about the campaign, and to check the training times, visit www.gov.uk/guidance/safe-access
