Bottom Landing is the difficult bit even on paragliders. Bottom landing is very restricted being made in tight fields at the base of the hill with additional hazards of power cables and houses. Have a good look for power lines and fences first and horse riders in bottom fields. Top landing usually very pleasant, but don't land behind quarry (rotor). This site seems to suffer from rough air when the wind goes south of west.
Although soarable this site is not for the faint hearted, now little used.
Landing modern fast gliders will be difficult unless experienced. Pendle provides better flying for hang gliders at less risk.
A lovely little site easy but committed take off, soars in quite light winds, bottom landing in area between house with shed and pond it will have to be cross wind.
