Larkhill Range is the primary artillery range for the training and testing purposes for the Royal Artillery [see the main entry for Larkhill School of Artillery].
The first modern settlement at Larkhill came in 1899 when a tented camp was established for units training on an area of Salisbury Plain that became known as Larkhill range. Units were accommodated in large official campsite areas whilst training throughout the summer. As Larkhill range was specifically set aside for artillery practice, many of the units were artillery batteries. In 1914, the first permanent huts were built on the down. (Source: Wikipedia).
