Details

Members of the public are advised that although the dates and timings published are the best indication available at the time of publication, they may change.

Where no firing times are given for a site, there is no firing planned on that site in December 2019.

Do not enter the danger area when the range is in use, this is a danger to life. If ‘red flags’ or lights are hoisted, regardless of the timings, the public must not enter the training area.

These firing times are presented in 2 file formats in order to be web accessible on all devices.
