    Hythe Firing Ranges And Fisherman's Beach

    Hythe Ranges is one of the oldest ranges in the country and has been used for live firing for nearly 200 years.
    I went there for a walk this morning, but as they were practice shooting I couldn't go beyond the safety point, in fact I overstepped slightly beyond and was shouted at over a loudspeaker by the watchman behind the glass windows!

    They are also so close to the sea, and sea levels are rising.......
