Guns and Damsels

Posted: 9 March 2001

In a densely populated country like the UK, areas of true wilderness are now few and far between. But they can be found in the least expected places: like the bombing ranges of the UK's Ministry of Defence.

On 97,000 hectares of MOD-owned land, the diversity of plant and animal species is better maintained than in the official parks and reserves. At the Lulworth Gunnery School in Dorset, species long vanished from the intensively-farmed British countryside, are protected by the men in uniform.
