Kimmeridge incoming...

Post by WWBrue » Mon Jul 14, 2014 7:17 pm

Went for a paddle hoping to do the Kimmeridge to Weymouth leg today. However, the loud bangs and whizzes indicated that the challenger tanks were doing their thing. We thought better of it and messed around at Kimmeridge.

I thought that the ranges were out of use in July and August - I was camping along there on Friday night! Has their policy changed?

Range flags were up last weekend although only for the footpath, the road was still open.

They don't fire at weekends (mostly) but weekdays are pretty busy.

Thanks for the useful links...

We had a great day today, we started at Lulworth and went onto Osmington. Stunning scenery and nice pub at the end for a cream tea.
