I presume that that must be by invitation only?

I can't see any vehicular public rights of way up there

A long time ago I was involved in a search of that bit of land . . . . . . . . . for a missing cluster bomb :blink: :woohoo:

And I don't mean just a missing bomblet, but a whole blo*dy bomb! Failed to arm after release, so it all stayed together, not bursting open and spraying death in every direction, as designed :evil:

So if you do get to wander some more, mind yer step :S

PS - we did find the offending item . . . . and promptly made a big hole in the counrtyside when we atomised the MoFo :woohoo:

I used to deliver the ordnance that they fire up there, I never knew you could ride there.

Perhaps you're allowed to ride on certain days of the year like some parts of Salisbury Plain?

I think the best time to ride there is during the Lambing season as there is no live firing, or blanks due to the fact it scares the sh*t out of the litt'lins.
I spent alot of time up there during my TA days.

Im up there quite a lot and iv never seen any bikes around on the area but id love to do some exploring on the bike in stead of a 32t wrecker.

Has anyone been up that way to see if you can go anywhere up there.
