Are any areas off-limits?
Yes. Remember Tyneham and Worbarrow are part of the Ministry of Defence Lulworth Ranges. As the area is a LIVE FIRING range, while walking away from the track to Worbarrow you must KEEP TO THE PATHS MARKED WITH YELLOW POSTS at all times. Tyneham House and the former hamlets and farmsteads of Baltington, North Egliston, South Egliston and Povington are in the restricted zone and NOT accessible to the public.
Are there any restrictions on taking photos or filming?
No. You are free to take photographs and use video cameras in Tyneham Village and Worbarrow. Of course, you must not enter any areas that are off-limits. If doing a ‘film shoot’, you must not deny access to other members of the public.
Are dogs allowed?
Yes. But please keep your dog under control. There is no provision for the disposal of litter or dog waste at Tyneham. If you choose to clear up after your dog, please take the bag home with you. Alternatively, please ensure the waste is left to degrade naturally away from public footpaths.
Can metal detectors be used?
No. Metal detectors must NOT be used.
Please note we are NOT the Ministry of Defence who are responsible for the actual village (opening times, exhibitions, car park, toilet facilities etc.) and the surrounding ranges (clearing paths etc.).
