Where & When

Who's flying when and where....
We often fly Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, weather permitting! Check the 'Where and When' page if you plan coming to join us for time and location as we don't have set times and places!

Use wind direction from weather forecast and the chart below to get an idea of where people are likely to be flying, e.g. wind from the West, likely to be Edgworth. The arrows (where shown) indicates direction bias towards where the hill is deemed to work better from.

  1. Anybody flying at Edgworth tomorrow. I am thinking of going for about 1pm to sort out lock problem and whilst there am thinking of flying.

  3. A new lock, which uses the same key, has been fitted to the gate at Edgworth. Alex mentioned that users of the gate should leave it as they find it, ie if you find it open on arrival, or departure, please leave it as such.

  4. As a footnote to the above, the maggot farm are the main users of the gate and they control the main opening and closing of the gate. They do not wish to keep opening and closing it because of us changing the way they left it.
    Thanks everybody. Brian

  5. Is anyone intending to go sloping in the next week? I haven't been in a while and need my 'fix' Please let me know when and where you're intending to go. Also, is Rivington open as yet?

  7. Going to have a trip to Edgworth arriving about 1.30. Don’t know if weather will improve but you have got to try.

  8. Just for information. The lock on the gate has disappeared again, presumably smashed. It lasted a week. Presumably someone is removing it, it is the weakest point on the lock and chain method. The other lock is one which is much stronger. We will have to investigate how to solve this problem. I tried to see the farmer but he was not in.

  9. Has the chain also gone? or just our lock?
