Hythe Ranges
Hythe Ranges
An area of flat low lying land adjoining the foreshore. The Hythe Ranges has been used for live firing for nearly 200 years, and is one of the oldest ranges in the country. The area is steeped in military history where, there are three Martello Towers (N 14, 15 & 19) and the Dymchurch Redoubt along the seafront, built in the early 1800s to resist potential invasion by Napoleon. There were five further Martellos (16, 17, 18, 20 & 21) which have been demolished or lost to sea. They were also used as lookouts during World War II.

Hythe Ranges are used for live firing with a Danger Area extending out to sea. Red flags are flown during live firing periods, when access is prohibited along the foreshore by the public. Access is available along the foreshore during periods of non-firing.
