Protocols for Walkers and Guests at Lleweni Parc

Airfield protocol:

The runway and surrounding area are exclusively for flying operations. The dangers of aircraft landing and taking off cannot be over-stressed.

When gliders are launched by winch, cables are dragged from one end of the runway to the other - they may move unexpectedly at speeds of up to 80mph. After a launch, the cable is dropped from the glider onto the field and hits the ground with considerable force.

When gliders are launched by aerotow, the returning tug drags a rope at high speed close to the ground.

Approaching aircraft are often completely silent and can be very hard to spot.  The runway must be treated as LIVE at ALL times

KEEP OFF THE RUNWAY, RUNWAY APPROACHES AND ADJACENT GRASS AT ALL TIMES

Sometimes on the perimeter track you may come across aircraft being moved to and from the runway. You should always give way to the aircraft and pedestrians should understand that even when the aircraft is stationary, the propeller may be turning fast enough to kill.

KEEP AWAY FROM PROPELLERS AT ALL TIMES.

Priority must also be given to vehicles and agricultural machinery on the perimeter track

To see where the perimeter track and runway are, you can follow this link to Bing Maps:

General protocol:

If dogs are to be unleashed, no more than two dogs are allowed per handler.  Larger groups of dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.

Dogs should be kept on a lead on the airfield perimeter track (and as far as the bears on entering the woods) and anywhere where they might disturb the wildlife. They must also be kept off the agricultural land which must be protected from fouling.  Please cause no damage and keep off the farmed areas (including the airfield grass.)

DOGS' doings can be scooped or flicked into deep undergrowth or bagged and binned at home. (Please don't litter the hedgerows with plastic bags!)  Bags must NOT be left at the side of the paths for later collection.

We haven't got BMX tracks -  sorry, our walks are not suitable for your bike.

The only parking for walkers is in the grass car park (http://www.lleweniparc.co.uk/walkerscarpark.png) on the lane at the South side of the airfield.  Our security arrangements mean that the airfield gates may be locked at any time day or night.  There are no arrangements for emergency extraction of parked cars. Parking at Lleweni Bridge is for R&SAAA fishermen only. Parking at the Lleweni houses is absolutely for residents only. The tourer park is for caravanners only and must not be used for parking.  The passing places on the lane are not available for parking.

Car parking passes must be displayed at all times and personal passes carried so that any of the personnel employed on site can be sure of who you are.
