Hankley Common – Military Training

advance notice trg July 17 2020

Last Sunday, military training was interrupted by many walkers and riders ignoring MoD signs and instructions from troops. 

Marked Bridleways are public rights of way, but Hankley Common is primarily a military training area and this takes priority over public access.  Troops in training use gunfire & pyrotechnics. For your own personal safety and to avoid interrupting training, please comply with signs and instructions from troops.

Only three or four intense training days are announced by notice. On those days please explore other local Commons, such as Elstead, Ockley, Thursley, Royal, Crooksbury, Britty, Puttenham, Shackleford, Rodborough, Witley, Mare Hill, Frensham or Hindhead.
