About this event

The Specialist Training Facility for Avon and Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Police is located within Black Quarry, Portishead. The building houses two indoor firing ranges as well as other specialist training facilities.

The disused quarry site is the home of nesting Peregrine Falcons, Ravens and other wildlife which presented some interesting challenges. Blackrock was the victim of an arson attack when it was close to completion. The building was practically demolished and rebuilt.
