South east off the A488 at Llanfihangel Rhydithon by a church. Follow the road/track up the hill. Park on the side of the track before the barn and walk to T/O on the right.
- T/O altitude 1475 ft AMSL
- Top to bottom 450 ft
- Take-off and top landing are straightforward but rotor is likely near the gully to the left of T/O.
- Bottom landing is very restricted in either of the two fields. You are advised to inspect it before flying. Do not land in the landing fields if cattle are present.
- No paramotors allowed.
- No dogs allowed.
