SPTA

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've been lucky enough, or such like, to have found myself given a fully specced up defender. Now i'm familiar with SPTA from an army point of view (being in the TA), but i was just wondering what the rules were about off-roading from a civvie point of view on the land?

    Obviously i wouldn't want to go pissing off the wardens etc, just wondering if joe bloggs was allowed to utilise the plain for a bit of harmless mud churning.... granted i probably wouldn't want to go into the x-country training area without some kind of back up plan.

    Many thanks

  2. I think you are on a loser here, SPTA Staff and LAND are in a constant battle with the environmentalist types!
    To the extent that Sat Images are being produced to show how much Greenery is being trashed by Tracked vehicles. Hence the stick to tracks whenever possible rule!
    The Range staff RE WO1 at SPTA L** Fr***H is a good bloke to get in touch with and will probably be able to tell you about clubs if any that have got privileges!
    Good Luck!!
     
  3. You can do this if you get permission from the range staff. You will need to show full licence and an insured/taxed bike.
     
  4. If you do get permission: I dropped a 1/2" x 3/8" spanner at Bowls Barrow in 1982. If you find it could you send it back to me?
     
  5. GDAV to late ive found it and sold it back to 3RD TROOP happy days
     
  6. That's ok Ned, it makes up for the fact that I pinched yours to replace it ;)
     
  7. the local green laning clubs are allowed escorted access days on the plain, give them a bell.
     
  8. Glyn all you got was an oily spanner i got the crate 8)
