Parliment Hill ; Regents Park North London Flying areas?

Post by Davy » Thu, 10 Jun 2004 20:03:24


Hi,

I've been out of the kite flying game for many years.  About 20 years
ago I used to fly on Parliment Hill.  Are there any regular flyers
still using this site?

I also seem to remember that 1 of the Kite books used to suggest that
there were some flyers in Regents Park.  Are they still there?

Does anybody still have a "Gabriel" deep sky reel?

regards

DavyW

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'.
