Calm to combat

Our land – full of beauty, splendour and wonder.
From lush landscapes to unique wildlife. 

But here, you never know what’s around the corner. Things can change in the flick of a switch.

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

Welcome to 'Respect the Range' 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.

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.
