SITE RULES:
There are no specific rules relating to this site. Just remember to follow the country code, fly sensibly and keep a look out for members of the public.

Take-off:       

Landings:

Comments: No recent reports of flying activity. Top landings are possible but
difficult  due to trees and rotor from the quarry. Bottom landings are                 
restricted and should be crosswind. Note the POWER LINES in the       
bottom field BEFORE take-off. The site does not work as well as
Sutton Bank but may be an alternative if the wind is crossed.
Prone to turbulence in moderate winds.
