Around the World: London juxtaposes “quirky” Olympic venue with 200 year old building

New images of the London 2012 Shooting venue – located in the grounds of Woolwich’s historic Royal Artillery Barracks (over 200 years old) – were today released by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

The temporary venue in south-east London will host the Shooting and Paralympic Shooting competitions, in addition to Paralympic Archery.

The contractor for the three enclosed ranges and three open-air ranges is Hertfordshire-based John Sisk & Sons, with the venue set to be completed ahead of international shooting test events next spring.
