Drew a complete blank on the last two of these at Clee Hill, although have had a good watch at Eastnor Castle in the past especially when they described our parked car as one of the visual references for the run in to the target !!

I believe Clee Hill is today, Eastnor Castle is tomorrow (Thursday) and HoW is Friday. I cycled a 36 mile round trip out to EC today to see some of it and then found out on a different notam page it was the wrong day! No matter, was a nice ride.
