Description (This site is Closed and under negotiation)
A large, grassy south east-facing ridge.
Access and parking
From New Radnor, drive north east up Mutton Dingle and into the forest. Then, either park by the gate at SO205618, or open the gate (combination 2613, be sure to lock it behind you) and drive up to take off.
George and Katie Barstow at Fforest Farm have a key to the gate, but this must be returned to them at the end of the day.
Anywhere in the take off field. Be careful of the barbed wire fence behind take off.
Anywhere in the take off field. The compression is strong above take off so It is often easier to land on the flatter ground to the west. Do not land in any other fields.
Anywhere in the take off field, but you must not in any other field except the designated bottom landing field.
“THERE IS NO BOTTOM LANDING AT PRESENT – a new location is currently being negotiated. Please contact Will Barstow for an update BEFORE FLYING”). The landing field is small and slopes steeply towards the stream.
WARNING: This is a thermic site and a large number of the major collapses seen within the club over the past years have occurred here. The take off field /slope is not soarable unless the wind is strong, however, in strong conditions the gullies in front of takeoff can cause the area to become very turbulent. Top landing is not recommended in these conditions. Take care.
