DIRECTIONS

For detailed directions from your location to Larkhill click on the site location (white dot) on the map below (under advice), click 'Directions' and Google maps will plot your route.

You can also access any other site location from here or use the map on the main Pennine Site Guide page. Alternatively scan the QR Code and access all PSC Guide information through your phone.

 

ACCESS

Vehicles must be parked completely off the track at the top of the hill. (OS SD 995077). Take footpath eastwards across one field to other side of the field, then turn northwards along Harrop Edge to take off area.

 

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.


Hang Gliders     

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

Paragliders      

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

 

ADVICE

This hill is expert only. Take care.



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.
