Salisbury Plain Army Training Estate (ATE SP) is one of the most well known areas of all Ministry of Defence (MOD) land. The Army has been connected with Salisbury Plain since 1897 and the total area of the current estate is just over 38,000 hectares. It is 25 miles by 10 miles (40km by 16km) and occupies about one ninth of the area of Wiltshire. In terms of land use, much of the land is let to farmers or is grazed under licence. Approximately 12,150 hectares of the land is used for live firing and as impact areas. Public access is permanently restricted in certain areas for safety reasons. This includes the Imber Live Firing Area which is closed permanently, although the roads from Gore Cross to Warminster and Bratton to Heytesbury via Imber are opened to the public on a number of days each year. Also, a church service is held in Imber village every September.
