Take Off
******CLOSED ****** As of November 2018, the site is closed due to the current height of the trees on the hill rendering the take-off unsafe. It should not be flown. ******* CLOSED ******
Local Flying
The ridge is small and so is the lift band so take care. Pilots should be aware of the bushes and the possibility of being blown back as it is a spine-back ridge.
XC Flying
Small site and not often used but may offer potential for paragliders.
Top Landing
It is a spine-back ridge so top landing on a hang-glider is not recommended. Depending on the vegetation, it is possible to land a paraglider near the top of the hill.
Bottom Landing
The car park area. Beware that the ground slopes away towards power lines and houses! If in doubt ask
Hospitals
Stroud or Gloucester.
