SU9357 : Bisley Camp

taken 12 years ago, near to Pirbright, Surrey, Great Britain

Bisley Camp
Bisley Camp
The entrance to the headquarters of the National Rifle Association at Bisley. The National Rifle Association was founded in 1859 and held its first competitions on Wimbledon Common. As that area developed there was increasing pressure to find an alternative site and the last Meeting at Wimbledon was in 1889. Bisley was chosen to replace it largely because there was plenty of open land with the Guards Camp at Pirbright and the large Aldershot garrison nearby. The new ranges there opened in 1890. The camp is now a conservation area and represents something of an Edwardian time-warp.
