We were unsure were we making a mistake as it's not very clear where it is. You really need o park up and walk out on the bog road until you eventually see this white cone structure in an elevated position. A trip up to the memorial accross the road and up the hill about a mile or so is worth it just for the view. Also a trip to the Museum at the Station House I feel brings the story to life and illustrates just how much of an achievement the flight was.

Can you imagine, flying in open air from America and then landing in a Bog near Clifdem, What a Shock that must have been

We agree with previous review.There is nothing to mark the actual landing site.After searching for two hours we could find no trace of actual site. See photo.

Shame that this was not in any promotional material available , again it was only through personal knowledge that we found the site.Not sign posted very well and obviously on private property. Glad we persevered.
