Rifle butts

From WW1 and until recently these mounds of earth (butts) were used for rifle practice.

The site also contains evidence of WW1 practice trenches and ancient ridge & furrow field layout.

There was an army camp built nearby and the range has been used by a local rifle club.

It is a protected site although there is ongoing residential building on the site of the former army camp to the west.
