Stanford Training Area
Stanford Training Area
The Stanford Training Area (STANTA), more commonly known by its original name the 'Battle Area', is a vast army training ground occupying about 30,000 acres of Norfolk breckland. The land was acquired in 1942 taking over six villages and has been used ever since - including training troops for operations in Afghanistan. Many of the roads entering the area are part of the original road network, but this one, just west of The Arms, was purpose-built.
