The only right of way available for use by the public on the range complex is via the bridle path.

Maps are located at the following locations:

  • beginning of the bridle path near the entrance to Whittington Village
  • the access point in the South of Hopwas Wood at the point of the bridge crossing the canal

Members of the public must follow the route of the bridle path and not enter the range complex. Full details are contained within the Whittington byelaws.

Hopwas Wood and parts of the range may be used by soldiers for dry training, including the use of blank ammunition. Members of the public should stay on the bridleways or recognised tracks and observe any warning signs displayed.
