Ministry of Defence (MOD) Shoeburyness: Range Sea Danger Area

Our Commodore has received an email from Nicki Uden (Community Liaison Officer – MOD Shoeburyness Range) regarding the restrictions in the vicinity of the Foulness and Maplin Sands.

QinetiQ operates the live weapons test and evaluation Range in Shoeburyness and on Foulness Island in Essex, known as MOD Shoeburyness. The Range is active Monday to Friday (occasionally at weekends), all year round conducting activities that involve firing and detonating live ammunition, often over long distances out to sea.

A copy of the email can be viewed here.
