    Limitations and Stipulations

    All activity on the site is conducted in a strictly controlled environment and presents no danger to the public. Please note that the weather, tide times and other operational requirements play a crucial part in trials planning and scheduling. Any one, or a combination of these factors, may mean that the activity has to be cancelled and rescheduled at short notice and it may not be possible to provide you with an updated schedule of work.

    The flying of red flags at the range boundary, or the lima flag (yellow and black quartered) at further points, indicates to members of the public that the range is active and there will be firing activities taking place.  At those times the byelaws noted on the signs near to the flags are in force.  If the red (or lima) flags are not flying, the range is not active and there will be no firing activities undertaken and as such the byelaws are not in force.

    Please be aware that QinetiQ carries out work at MOD Eskmeals on behalf of the MOD, under contract with the Secretary of State for Defence.  Because of the nature of the work, QinetiQ is limited as to the level and detail of information it can provide in these communications. 

    QinetiQ operates a free phone care line number, 0800 0150536 for members of the public to call with any queries or concerns. 

    Please feel free to forward this message on to others who you feel may benefit. 

    If you do not wish to receive these notifications please reply to this email with a request to unsubscribe.
