Colchester Training Areas will have troops training on most days during the month of August 2020. Members of the public are reminded that the ranges are closed when Red Flags are flying, or Red Lamps/lights are displayed; also, that the training areas are only available for recreational walking when NOT being used for military training. Pest Species control and Deer Management, using shotguns and rifles, will also take place on these ranges and training areas and members of public are therefore warned of this potential risk when entering the training area and ranges. A danger of unexploded bombs exists on the ranges and training areas. Members of the public intending to make use of these areas, when safe to do so, should ensure that they remain on public rights of way all the time.
