Lilstock Gunnery Range

 

The Village of Lilstock is situated in the North West part of Somerset.

The Gunnery range situated out in Bridgewater Bay was used by fixed Wing Aircraft till 1995.

Since then helicopters predominantly from RNAS Yeovilton use the range.

I have witnessed a RAF C17 use it and understand other Helicopter Squadrons withing the Air Force and Army also can use the Gunnery range from time to time.

In the background to some photos the Nuclear Power station at Hinckley point can be seen.
