Entries are invited for the 4th Midland Region eSoaring league competition of 2017 at Fish Meadow Upton upon Severn, on Saturday 17th June 2017

Fish Meadow is at Upton upon Severn, Worcestershire. Upton is situated on the banks of the River Severn and lies mid-way between the towns of Tewkesbury and Malvern. It is close to Exit 1 on the M50 motorway.

On leaving the M50 at Exit 1, take the A38 north for three miles, in the direction of Worcester, to the staggered junction with the A4104 at Bluebell Farm and signed to Upton upon Severn.

Turn left on to the A4104. In one mile you gain access to the flying field via a "slip-road" from the A4104.

When approaching from the East, the slip road is on your left and about 100 yards before you reach the bridge over the River Severn and just a few yards past the entrance to the Upton Marina.

The slip road runs parallel to and beside the main road towards the bridge and the river bank. Turn right just before the river bank and drive slowly through a tunnel, under the A4104, which leads via an iron gate, with a notice board on it, on to Fish Meadow flying field. Access by vehicle through this tunnel is now controlled by a locked barrier. The combination of the lock is only made known to members.
A post code of WR8 OPB Will get you to East Waterside but do not go to the end of the road turn right under the bridge onto the meadow

Michael,
Only if you promise to behave yourself!

All,

The 3 Counties Show is taking place at the Malvern Show Ground this weekend.

Depending on your route to Upton, you may like to make allowances on your travelling time.

Thanks to Hugh for the heads up
