I used to fly there two years ago. There was a group of about five of us
that met there most weekends. I got fed up with the bad winds, lack of space
and the idiot flying a very large (4M high) copy of a Peter Powell stunter
with a 100M tail on 100M lines and taking up all the sky.

I doubt it. I think kite flying is banned in the Royal Parks. I fly on
Clapham Common. It's not great, but it's five minutes from where I live. Try
Blackheath Common. It's the only decent flying space in the whole of London.

I've got a couple of home-made ones, but I've never heard of a 'Gabriel'.
