Parking

Without blocking the road or track at the house on the right as the road turns left.  Alternatively park to the west and walk up the shoulder.

Reference

Follow the public footpaths.  Walk beyond the quarry for the best T/O and T/L.  B/L on the moor outside the enclosures.

Capacity

Six, a hill of reasonable length, but with a narrow lift band that limits numbers in the air.

Hazards

HT cables near the road. Be careful not to overshoot.
Rocky ridge and slope.
Cross wind landing required in the bottom landing field.

Likely rotor behind the quarry.

Heather snagging your lines.  At certain times of the year paragliders may not be able to find any suitable places to take-off.

Rules

This site is below controlled airspace.  Stay below 3,000' AMSL.

Do not fly east of the walled wood on the ridge (opposite Netherworthy House) as this takes you into controlled airspace (down to GL).

Comments

A long walk.

Interesting RAF memorial to the crew of a deHaviland Mosquito that crashed here in 1943.
