MOD Shoeburyness is a live weapons test and evaluation Range and as such, can be a hazardous place. The nature of the work carried out on the site means that public access has to be strictly controlled. Some areas adjacent to the site's perimeter fence are open to the general public. In these areas, the Range uses a variety of signs, notices and signals to indicate prohibited areas, Range operational status and any restrictions in force in public areas (e.g. closure of Shoeburyness East Beach).
Here you can see examples of what these signs and signals look like and what they mean. Please remember that these measures are in place for public safety reasons and instructions should be followed at all times.
