DIRECTIONS

For detailed directions from your location to Millstone Edge 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

Follow the path through the rocks and along the Pennine Way along the top of the hill. Take off and top landing area is just past the trig point.

 

SAFETY

Do not land directly behind the rocks, that line of exposed peat is caused by the rotor!


Hang Gliders

Top landing is easy. Bottom landing is tricky as the hill slopes for miles but there is a small area of flat fields in front of take off, if you miss them its either an uphill landing or a long walk out! The site is very shallow but slopes for miles into two valleys and so works well. If you fly too far from take off and are not going up you won't make it to the bottom landing area.  Does not work well in strongish winds, which tend to 'flatten' the slope.

Paragliders

The slope is very shallow – would need to be thermic really.
