TQ0373 : The Butts, Staines Moor

taken 1 year ago, near to Hythe End, Windsor And Maidenhead, Great Britain

The Butts, Staines Moor
The Butts, Staines Moor
According to the information sign, rifle ranges were here, owned in 1862 by the Metropolitan Rifle Range. There were many butts, but most of the area used is now under Wraysbury Reservoir. These are the last surviving remains of butts. They were closed at the request of the GWR, who has a line very close by, for safety reasons. 'Request' the board says, but I expect money changed hands.
