The airfield is situated in the Costwolds on the B4066 Dursley to Stroud.
From junction 13 of the M5
Take the A419 towards Stroud, turn right at the first roundabout to Eastington. Go straight on for approx one mile, through Eastington village, till you reach a roundabout (by a Co-Op store). At Eastington roundabout turn left and follow the road (Frocester hill) through Frocester village and up a steep hill to a crossroads at the top of the hill. Turn left at the top of the hill onto the B4066. The entrance to the BGGC is 1 mile along the road on the right hand side. Do not take the right hand turn signed to Nympsfield Village - the airfield entrance is after this turn.
From Dursley or Stroud
The airfield is situated on the B4066 (signposted as "Scenic Route") between Stroud and Dursley. The entrance is on the South side of this road (right hand side if travelling from Dursely). The BGGC is about 1 mile from the turn off for Nympsfield village (do not follow the sign into Nympsfield village itself).
Visiting By Air ?
We welcome visiting powered aircraft but please be aware that a gliding airfield operation can appear quite different if you are not familiar with that environment. In addition our location means that in winds with a Southerly or Northerly component turbulence on approach can be sever. For these reasons we are strictly PPR, please call the office to check on conditions and get a briefing and read the briefing notes.
Visiting gliders are welcome any time - keep a good lookout as circuits can be on either side of the field. In general, if there is a cross-wind, make your circuit on the upwind side as heavy sink can be found on the downwind side.
