The photo appears to be of the Butts, devoid of the usual earth protection, and missing the target frame mechanisms typical of the period. The ones at Bisley were still in use until the early 80s.

Conyer Teynham Rifle Range.

In 1906 the range had two movable targets with shooting taking place at up to 1,000 yards.
In 1959 the range had 8 targets at 500 yards.
