From Abergavenny follow the signs for Crickhowell. One mile after Crickhowell turn right off the A40 at the Cider Mill Inn on to the A479.

Approximately 6 miles after this junction you will pass the Castle Pub on your RH side before reaching the brow of the hill. Trailers can turn right just after the brow of the hill.

Cars should continue down the main road for about a quarter mile then turn right down a small lane signposted to "GLIDING". A short distance along the lane turn left at a T junction then 100 yds on turn right (both signposted). A mile further on you will see a final sign to the left at the entrance to the airfield. Please drive with care in the lanes as they are narrow.

If you are coming from the west follow the signs to Talgarth town. At Talgarth take the A479 up the hill towards Crickhowell. Approximately half a mile before the top of the hill you will see a signpost to "GLIDING" on your LH side directing you to turn left. Then follow the lane instructions given previously.

Please note that thee is no access up the minor road from Talgarth that passes the former hospital.
