Thorn Range, Dunstable (LU5 6JQ)

Thorn Range closed on the 19th March 2017 to make way for the development of a new ‘Distribution Centre’. The BSSA are working with the Central Bedfordshire Council to develop a replacement facility.

The range has 48 firing points, 9 of these are closed in during the winter months to provide a warmer environment for short range shooting on winter evenings.

There is also a 4 point 10 metre indoor .177 airgun range, with automatic target changers.

The Club room offers catering facilities and all facilities are disabled friendly.
