The Long Mynd in Shropshire is the home of the Midland Gliding Club. The closest train station is in Church Stretton.

If you visit, read the information for visiting glider pilots.[1]


MGC does not have a members' kitchen, but three meals are provided for about £15-20 a day.

Food can only be paid for in cash, so bring enough in advance! The nearest ATM is far away, and you might well be snowed in.


MGC has bunk, double and single rooms available. The bunk rooms are cheapest (£12/person/night), but you'll need a sleeping bag. The others have linen provided. Some single/double rooms have en-suites, but they are expensive (£20-35/person/night).

Other costs

There is a £50 deposit to be paid well before the expedition.
