Interpreting Readings

The actual site at Devils Dyke takes winds principally from N, NNW, and NW, but the Wendy station is used to check the winds for other nearby hills, which take other wind directions. The station is screened slightly by trees in Easterly and Southwesterly winds, and may under-read in those directions. The anemometer is approx 60 feet above ground level. more...

Pilot Notes

The site is used by Hang Gliders, and Paragliders, who belong to the Southern Hang Gliding Club, who should be contacted before flying a Hang or Paraglider in the area. The site is also used by model flyers, slope soarers, and is a pleasant recreational area, with a good view of the South Downs. There is a golf club nearby, as well.
