Hi, I have been trying to find out if the area near USK glider club (Usk ,South Wales, UK) is a no fly zone. The no fly guides on the Web do not show this at all.

I intend to stay well within the UK height limit(400') and do not intend to do any long distances.

I am just trying to find out if I can launch my P4 within this area. My garden is above the flight path of the gliders.

Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

A Screenshot from Drone Assist shows that Usk is a short distance from the advisory exclusion zone so I would fly with caution.
Thanks Mikero. I actually live in the town shown as Gwernesney, right in the zone. I have an open field and wondered if it is permissible to do very low level practices with the children staying no higher than my border trees and within the field boundaries.

Or is this a legalised no fly zone regardless of height.

BTW we fly kites in our field. Also the glider club tow Plane pilot (500 yards from me) flies a pro helicopter sometimes in his garden. ???
