Important Notices / Recent Issues

Do not use the Hard Stiles Road end access at present.

A new locked steel gate has been fitted at the "Gap in Wall" - we need to talk to the landowner re access.

You must text Ronnie Bailey before flying. He will respond if there are any issues you need to be aware of.

BL3 is closest to the ridge but should only be used in an emergency.

Due to lambing or hay making the following closures apply: do not fly if there is a risk of needing a field that is closed.

BL1 – closed all of April, May and June.

BL2 & 4 – closed March 15 to April 15, and all of June.

BL3 – closed all of May and June.

Changes to these dates will be published here on the DHPC website.

Parking

From High Fremington drive up the single lane road towards Fremington Edge and the White House. There is parking space for several cars on the right, opposite the drive to the White House. Alternatively take the Hard Stiles Road heading east from Fremington and park on the right just before the right turn to Marrick.

Access

Be aware the access lane up to the White House is very narrow. From the White House parking, continue on foot up the stoned track, then head to the right on the public footpath to the take off area.

From Hard Stiles Road, follow the public footpath staying on the right hand side of the wall until you reach a step in the wall to the left. Where the wall turns sharp left there is an opening. Re-fasten any temporary fencing or gates. Once through, carry on in the original direction to the first take off area. A steeper take off area with top landing lies a little further on but you must only pass through the gate in the wall, which is located slightly down the slope. Close all gates.

Capacity
Hazards
