I guess it's a big area...

The SMSA club flys at edge hill and burton dasset in warks/oxon.

But we could add other sites if you know any?

Yep. So

Burton dasset SW often poor lift/good landing area.
Egde hill NW good lift/poor landing area.
Malverns?

Definitely have a look there, it's quite a twitchy site for access due to long running paraglider disagreements.

There is basically one hill you can fly off (two names but really two close together sub-peaks) which gives you rocky but good east slopes and softer landing but not quite as good west slopes.

Both sides are well worth the trip. And the climb...

I don't know if it's too far, but Cleeve Hill (on the north east edge of cheltenham) flies SW.

South of there you get into the SCSA slopes around Stroud.

Had a good fly at burton dasset toad with the usual crowd.

Had a blast round with the psycho and the acrostar while the wind was up. The spectator  kids likedit. Then tried the spirit in the thermal.

Strega changed hands and was maidened by local. Another local ripping around with an ascot.
