The Lulworth Ranges
The Dorset Coast, from Kimmeridge Bay to Lulworth Cove, lies within the Lulworth Army ranges. The opening times of the range walks, and the village of Tyneham, are given here.
The Lulworth Ranges are part of the AFV (Armoured Fighting Vehicles) Gunnery School, an important training establishment of the British Army. They include the coast from just west of Kimmeridge Bay to just east of Lulworth Cove as well as the village of Tyneham, Worbarrow Bay and a number of other walks, detailed in the booklet Walks on MOD Lands. For operational and safety reasons access to the ranges is restricted to specific times.
The sea danger area extends up to six nautical miles offshore between Lulworth Cove and St. Aldhelm's (St Alban's) Head. Vessels are asked to keep out of the area at firing times.
