Former Belper Volunteer Battalion firing range
The range and its target wall pictured in SK3345 : Wall on Chevin Ridge, are grade 2 listed structures. They were constructed circa 1800 for the local militia, The Belper Volunteer Battalion, raised by Strutt family who established the textile factory communities at Belper and Milford. Lt. Cl. Joseph Strutt was the battalion commander. The range was used during the Napoleonic Wars, and again in 1860, during the Boer War and the First World War.
