Culmstock Beacon

Culmstock Beacon is the heart and home of the Club and flies SSE-W. We fly on the Beacon on most Sunday afternoons from about 2pm throughout the year subject to wind direction. We also fly on Wednesday evenings during the summer and Wednesday during the day in the winter.

It is situated near Wellington, Somerset and has delightful views.

To reach the site from the north, leave J26 M5 Motorway and take the A38 towards Tiverton. After 1 mile, turn left signposted Culmstock. Bear left at Nicholashayne and after half a mile, turn left signposted Beacon. At the end of the lane, park but please do not obstruct as we enjoy the goodwill of local residents. The west and south facing slopes are reached by walking through the gate, continue on up the track and bear right at the top. You will eventually come to a stone beacon hut.
