Manorbier Range military heritage tour offers public rare access

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is giving members of the public a rare opportunity to visit Manorbier Range and find out how military training takes place in a heritage and conservation site within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

The National Park Authority and MOD will be conducting a joint guided tour on 24 August at 10am, offering a fascinating insight into Wales’ military heritage and the use of this Military Training Estate.

Ranger Lynne Houlston said: “The guided tours have proved very popular over the past ten years as this area is normally out of bounds to the public.

“Please be aware that numbers are restricted so book early to avoid disappointment. The tour will not be suitable for children under the age of 16 and dogs are not permitted on the Range.”

The tour will include a presentation by Range Commandant Major Peter Sulman on the military history and use of Manorbier since its creation in 1938.

This will be followed by a close-up view of the Banshee, the aerial target used on the Range.
