Structure at disused rifle range in the east of Merthyr Mawr Warren
Structure at disused rifle range in the east of Merthyr Mawr Warren
In addition to the disused rifle ranges at Merthyr Mawr Warren which straddle grid squares SS8477 and SS8577, one is to be found further to the east in this area of duneland. The structure seen lies on the site of this range, which was in use in the nineteenth century and is identified by maps of the period as a Volunteer Rifle Range. The same maps suggest that the targets at the range lay at, or close to, the spot where the structure is situated.

The structure lies a few metres to the south of the grid line which forms the northern boundary of grid square SS8676.
