Merrivale Range, Devon


  • Located in Princetown, Devon, South West England, England
  • The British Army trains on Dartmoor. They use three areas, or ranges, in the northern section of the National Park. These three ranges are Okehampton Range, Willsworthy Range and Merrivale Range. The Merrivale Range is covered in this listing. We've positioned Merrivale Range on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its general location. We'd recommend you refer to the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail
  • If you look at that Ordnance Survey map, you'll see an area marked 'MERRIVALE RANGE DANGER AREA'. On that map, little red triangles define the range's border. When the Army is using the range, stay away. You'll see red flags on high ground warning you that the army is training. It's likely you'll hear the crack of gunfire as well. When the Army is not using the range, you are free to enjoy the tors and moorland
  • On, or near, the eastern border of Merrivale Range are Beardown Tors, Lydford Tor and Rough Tor (Dartmoor). Beyond the north and north eastern border are the North West Passage, Cut Hill and Fur Tor. Within the western border is Lynch Tor. Just outside the south western border are Great Mis Tor and White Tor
  • A number of large Devon rivers rise on the high plateau within the range
