News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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.
