Station Situation

Carlton Bank Wendy station is on the premises of the Carlton Moor Gliding Club, on a hill above and to the south of Carlton-in-Cleveland village, near Stokesley, to the south of Middlesbrough. The Carlton Bank flying site is about 400 yards to the North, used by Hang Gliders, and Paragliders, who belong to the North Yorks Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club who should be contacted before flying a Hang or Paraglider in the area. The area is also popular with walkers. For detailed location, see the linked map.|OS Grid ref: NZ524022|Altitude: 1300ft (396m)

Interpreting Readings

The actual site at Carlton Bank takes winds primarily from NW through N to NE, but we have no precise information. The Wendy station is not in an ideal location, being a little lower down, but it is the nearest place we could obtain a site nearby. The station is well back from the North-facing escarpment edge, and thus tends to under-read in Northerly winds, particularly in unstable conditions, when the main wind force passes over the top of the station. In all other directions, there is flat ground around the station, so in East through South to West winds, the station will read the true windspeed. The anemometer is approx 40 feet above ground level. A check with Sutton Bank is advisable, and average the readings of the 2 stations. Sutton has flat ground to the North of its sensors, so it reads true in Northerlies. However, it gets rotored in SW-W-WNW, and under-reads. So, you should check Sutton Bank for flying at Carlton Bank, and Carlton Bank for flying at Sutton Bank! more...|Local contacts|North Yorks Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club
