Flying Site Discipline

It is of prime importance that the access gate from the main road is only to be opened to enable personal or vehicular access. It must be closed immediately & securely.

Dogs are not allowed at the flying field (used for grazing sheep & cattle throughout the year)

No litter of any kind must be left at the site.

The amenity of the tenant farmer is paramount. Our activities must not detract from his ability to rear stock efficiently and productively.

Other site users

Morriston farms rent out part of the hill to a shooting club. They also allow a local hunt to control foxes at the site. ADMF has good relations with both organizations and have had no instances of operational conflict.
