Comments:A few beats along the hill before I found very good lift taking me to near base at just over 3000ft ATO, when I decided to see where it would take me. Headed towards Oswestry (closer to main roads for getting back!). Made use of spasmodic lift where I found it, especially at Oswestry Hill Fort. Was planning to land on top at one point, but found good lift from its north face. This gave me a few hundred feet, but not enough to safely clear eastern edge of town, power lines, etc., so landed on town side of ring road near A495 roundabout, accross from Ford dealership. Many thanks to Lee for the retreive, not just of me, but Graham, Keith and Paul as well!
