Whitchurch in Shropshire
Finally, and just across the border into Shropshire, we have our launch site close to Whitchurch. Located just to the south of the town, and well sign-posted from the main roads, Alderford Lake is a beautiful private venue close to the A41 Whitchurch by-pass. Launching from the lakeside, this is a stunning location that also offers facilities such as refreshments and loos! It makes a relaxing spot for those friends or family who may not be flying or following the balloons.
Whitchurch, as Nantwich, is an ancient market town, and as such is well connected to the surrounding areas by an established road network. This makes navigation a simple task, whether travelling from Chester to the north, Shrewsbury to the south, or even Wrexham and Wales to the west.
The venue we fly from on any given day is determined by the wind direction, and deciding which of our launch sites will give us the best flight. Balloons cannot be steered! Consequently, passengers need to attend whichever of these venues that we determine to use - please click the button below for more details.
