Safety

A very difficult site to fly. In some conditions the site can be affected by wave, wind speeds
of 35mph have been measured at the take off site when winds of only 8mph have been
measured above Standedge cutting.

Notes

Restrictions
None, apparently the farmer would like to know if you are flying, rumour has it that he likes
to watch. There is no formal agreement here.

Paragliders

Very tight top landing, no bottom landing unless expert in side landing. Severe rotor & walls

Hang Gliders

Bottom landings are very difficult on Hang Gliders as the field slopes away steeply.

XC Potential

None at all unless you can skirt around Manchester CTR
