Welcome to Camphill
In 1935 the Derbyshire & Lancashire Gliding Club was launched at Camphill Farm, on the edge of escarpment in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
Camphill has been the home of the gliding club since it formed and over the last 85 years has established itself as one of the UK’s premier gliding clubs.

Our week-long residential courses include flights and simulator time, with the aim of progressing towards pilots going solo.
Who’s flying locally?
The Open Glider Network allows us to see where gliders are in real time. It’s fascinating to watch where people go, and to work out how they got there. Anytime it might be “gliding weather”, use the link to see what our pilots are up to.
