That is a awesome site nice flyin fella's. How often do you guys fly there. That's a 500 mph site for sure. When's the best time to come over to fly at that spot.

I agree it has the potential for very fast speeds, but we very rarely have strongish S-SSW'ly winds unaccompanied by heavy rain, so anything OK to fly in over 30 mph is rare indeed.
Though we do have slightly better luck sometimes with other wind directions & have, also adjacent to Mam Tor ('MT', the highest point in the Peak District), two other good DS sites.
1)'RE'/Rushup Edge/Rushup: S-SSW; also DSes in N-NNE (shallower backside)
2)'MS' (curved ridge on shoulder of MT): NW-N; also DSes in SSE-SE
3) 'HH'/ Mt. Famine: WSW-W (WxS ideal).
And there's excellent frontside flying at MT in any wind direction.
Plus the S.Wales' DS sites are readily accessible (i.e. in Oz terms - only a few hours' drive!), e.g. Pen-Y-Fan, Skirrid & Black Hill.
Should you intend to come over, let us know & we'll look after you.
