1000 yard rifle range with target banks and rounded mounds mapped at 200, 250, 300, 400, 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 900 & 1000 yards on OS 1884 (c) map, with associated (?) footpath (S1). By the 1900s the footpath and targets beyond 600 yards are no longer shown on the OS maps. Only the butt is shown on the 1920s to 1958 maps and this had also gone by the 2005 (?) mapping. Now ploughed field - gone?
