Where to fly your drone

Castlefield, Manchester (By kvetner)

This is a fascinating area of Manchester with lots of historic and modern architecture and infrastructure, and great views of the city centre.

I've used two take-off-and-landing points:

https://what3words.com/steps.rapid.above
This is a quite little path down from the main street, nobody else was there for the duration of two flights. I would not use this location late at night as it is unlit and anti-social behaviour could be expected.

https://what3words.com/sorry.achieving.resort
This is a canal-side path with benches for seating. It is close to a number of businesses and may only be practical at quiet times. I used it late on a quiet evening and was not approached at all.

Hazards: this is often a busy area for pedestrians. Note that many of the boats on the canal are used as homes, and there are several businesses and domestic buildings in close proximity. There can also be bird-life (seagulls and geese while I was there).

Derwent Reservoir nr. Consett (By CSB73)

I was passing here traveling between work sites. There are quite a few laybys on the road running around the reservoir so I just used one of these. The road itself was very quiet but timed my TOAL to avoid all traffic and passersby. Also a few picnic sites and footpaths in the area but not sure of permission actor these. Lovely area and well worth a visit!

Riber Castle, Derbyshire (By Earwig)

Park on Riber Road just before the T-junction then follow it on foot past the hall until it becomes the public footpath that runs down to Starkholmes. Just over the crest of the hill, where I have placed the marker, is a small field which is perfect for TOAL.

Contentiously, the Castle (Hall) itself has been undergoing conversion into apartments for several years and as such is fenced off and allegedly guarded 24/7. The location commands great views across the valley to Matlock.

Grenodd, Levern Estuary (By Woodbane)

Park on the outskirts of Greenodd by the tiny 'industrial' area. There's a John Deere shop as well as Fish & Chips, Ice Cream and a great little Bakery/Cafe all right there.

Walk back along A5093 towards roundabout then take a small path to the right at the river Crake before going over the bridge. Path follows river down towards Levern Estuary. Go under the main road bridge and bear right immediately up a rough path. Double back on yourself to cross back over main road bridge on the footpath. You'll see the foot bridge over the River Levern. If you cross it and then go right or left and drop down on to the lower path you can access the flat sandy banks which are excellent TOAL spots. Watch out for the large electricity pylons and cables - best to go upstream from them. Flying back towards Greenodd at height will give you the aerial shot of this small hillside village.

Brunswick Wharf, Manchester (By kvetner)

This is an urban location with good views of the River Irwell in central Manchester, and across the Manchester cityscape.

My take-off-and-land location was at the mouth of the long-disused Brunswick Wharf / Brunswick Basin (a canal which branched off the river and ran underground). After dark, it was quiet and I saw nobody else while I was there. It is accessible from Water Street M3 4JQ. Walk south past the Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel, then follow footpaths west alongside the disused basin once past the hotel forecourt. This leads to a riverside path with some suitable spots to take-off right next to the bascule bridge.

Accessibility: There is no parking on street, but other parking is available nearby and then it's a five-minute walk. The TOAL point was accessible via steps.

Hazards: It's a city-centre environment so there are pedestrians, cars, trains etc, and sometimes boats on the river during the daytime. You may be challenged by security from the hotel or nearby sites, so if concerned about that you may want to notify the police about your flight in advance. Brunswick Basin itself is not well-lit after dark, and there could be anti-social use after dark. During the daytime I would not expect this.

Mayfield, Manchester (By kvetner)

This is an urban location from which Manchester Piccadilly station, the old Mayfield Depot and the cityscape can be photographed.

My take-off-and-landing location was roadside on Rachel Street (M12 6HG). However, there are several back streets around here which are little used outside daylight hours.

Accessibility: straightforward. There are no parking restrictions.

Hazards: Highly urban location where you may be challenged during daylight hours; I was here after sunset. Pedestrians, cars and trains will be present nearby. Note this location is close to a red light district, so there could be other forms of unwelcome attention: it's a fairly scuzzy area after dark. I was here for over an hour and saw only one other person in that time (security guard for the Mayfield site).

Etihad Campus, Manchester (By kvetner)

This was a good place to photograph the canal, tramway and several nearby sports grounds including MCFC Etihad Stadium.

My take-off-and-land spot was on the south side of Ashton Canal as shown by the marker. This can be reached via a small footbridge from the towpath on the north side of the Canal.

I parked on Stuart Street, M11 4DQ, and followed the towpath from opposite the entrance to Philips Park. On a Sunday morning it was fairly quiet, although this was possibly largely because the canal towpath was blocked for construction work and there may be more people around when this is reopened.

Accessibility: Straightforward paths with no steps although some steep sections of path. Probably unsuitable for wheelchairs.

Hazards: I was there in May, and geese on the canal were a hazard (protective of goslings at this time of year!) There are pedestrians using the canal, and a tramway and other footpaths close by. There is the possibility of security staff from one of the nearby sports sites taking an interest, so if concerned, it may be worth notifying police of your plans in advance.

DJI drones: This location is within a DJI authorisation zone, this needs to be unlocked in advance using the DJI Fly Safe Self Unlocking website.

Basing Common (By Christopher)

Old Basing Common is a wide open area next to the remains of Basing House.

It once rivaled Hampton Court Palace in its size ( more rooms ) and opulence. Today only parts of the basement or lower ground floor, plus the foundations and earthworks, remain.

Other than a few low trees along old boundaries, the area us wide and open. The Basing House remains are slightly to the North of the pin pointed location.

Care should be taken as there are pylons running to the south of the Common alongside the main road.

There are many footpaths running across the area so expect people to be about and in summer there are loose horses on the fields that can get a little nosy.

Access is easy, you can park along the roads by the Common in Old Basing to the East or in the Basing Limepits Carpark ( just off the A33 on Redbridge Lane ) just to the West.

The water tower is a Grade II listed building. Built in 1909 by Major Philip Hunloke to serve the Bucknell Manor estate and the village of Bucknell. It was used until the 1950s when mains water was installed. The tower, often referred to as Trow Pool water tower, is very prominent on the M40 between junctions 9 and 10 at SP 54860 24800.

Public car park just off the main road approaching the tower. Take care not to block the farmer's gate. There is also a lake if you walk on from the tower. Please note beyond the lake is Ardley Quarry Woods. Flying is possible there but it's a cautionary zone so be aware of your surroundings. The Tower is also close to the M40 so take care not to overfly.

Brill Windmill (By mikeplow)

Last owned and used by the Pointer and Nixie family who also baked bread in their house in the village With timbers dating from 1685, Brill Windmill provides one of the earliest and best preserved examples of a post mill (the earliest type of European windmill) in the UK. Management and ownership of the Grade II* listed mill was passed to Buckinghamshire County Council in 1947 who, through a number of major interventions, have ensured that the mill still stands today. In 1967 the Council installed a structural steel framework that helps to support the mill's ancient timber frame but means that the mill is static and can no longer turn to face the wind.

Public common land with Windmill and picturesque village. Public car park (free)
Does get busy with walkers/dog walkers/ picniccers etc in good weather but large common land area so very easy to keep separation distances if your qualifications call for them. Extremely nice at sunset and sunrise. Have flown here many times with no issues at all.

The Ogre is one of a series of artworks and features that animate the Mythic Coast story trail along Cleveleys promenade in Lancashire. He was hand carved from a single fifteen ton block of limestone by the stonemason Adrian Wright and installed below the tide line on Cleveleys beach.
Check tide times before heading to see him, as he can be completely submerged at high tide.

Church In The Sea (By DavyAerial)

Church in the sea on Anglesey. A very strange place for a church on a tiny island not much bigger than the church itself. Quite easy to find, but limited parking as its down a farm lane once off the main roads. Different view depending on whether the tide is in or out. Also right next door to Anglesey race circuit which is also worth a visit for car and bike fans. Its also where they film a lot of '5th Gear' track action amongst other things.

To get here you need to exit the M4 at junction 40 and follow the signs for Goytre. Once you've passed through the village you should be on a narrow road through the forest. If coming from the South there will be a small lay-by on the left. Park here, cross the road and take the signposted path.(heading East). Lovely fl;at wooded walk with a gentle incline - stick to the main path and when the path splits you can take either but the more direct route is downhill. Not long after you will see a steep embankment and that is one end of the reservoir.

Cuningar Loop Woodland Park (By Drumsagard)

This small woodland park is in the middle of the City of Glasgow on a loop in the middle of the river Clyde. It is owned by Forestry & Land Scotland who allow drone flights from their property. From their website "You’re allowed to fly a drone on Scotland’s national forests and land, as long as you’re following the Civil Aviation Authority’s guidelines, including the Drone Code, and all other legal requirements, such as those relating to privacy/data protection, wildlife disturbance and the Health and Safety at Work Act. The CAA guidelines and Drone Code include the requirement to have your drone in sight at all times, which may not be possible in some forested areas. All pilots must follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and respect other people’s interests, care for the environment and take responsibility for your own actions. If you want to fly drones for professional reasons, please contact the relevant regional office to apply for permission as early as possible in your planning."

There is plenty of parking available with access points to the park from both sides of the river. One thing to note though, this park is normally very busy so I'd suggest early morning or late evening flights.

Wormwood Scrubs (By nathankw)

This is an officially marked Model Aircraft field in Wormwood Scrubs - a large area of parkland in West London.

The area is confirmed in the council byelaws here:

https://bit.ly/2KIEn8p

There are a lots of information boards around with various rules (see picture).
You're supposed to fly within the marked zone on the map but it's a fair size.

Flying is allowed at the following times (unless posted otherwise)
Monday – 1pm to 7.30pm
Tuesday – 9am to 6pm
Wednesday – 4pm to 7.30pm
Thursday – 9am to 6pm
Friday – 1pm to 7.30pm
Saturday – 9.30am to 1pm
Sunday – 10am to 1pm

WARNINGS:
The site is very near Wormwood Scrubs prison which is obviously a no-fly-zone.
However the actual forbidden area is only the immediate vicinity of the prison so stay well away and you'll be fine.

The whole site is also with the R160 restricted London zone. There's some confusion about exactly what that zone means - but it appears to only apply to helicopters.

Indeed - the existence of this officially designated zone within R160 is good evidence that drone flying is allowed within R160.

That makes this one of the closest official flying areas to Central London.

Pomona Strand, Manchester (By kvetner)

This is an area of waste ground suitable for flying in Open subcategories A1 and A2. I've positioned the marker to indicate a spot 150m away from the nearest buildings.

There are good aerial views towards Manchester city centre, Salford, Media City, Old Trafford etc.

Hazards: The area is derelict and sometimes there is anti-social use: I suggest be especially wary after dark. Possibility of drug needles etc on the ground.

Accessibility: I parked on Cornbrook Road next to Bennet Brothers (M15 4WB). There is a gap in the fence leading to Pomona Strand. There has been access in the past from Pomona Wharf / Waterways Avenue, and from the south end of Pomona Strand, but I haven't checked these recently.

Ivinghoe Beacon (By Mind_the_gap)

There a little car park if you follow the road from Ivanhoe around the actual beacon towards Ashridge Estate. As soon as you tucking the hill, the car park is there.
Just walk following the road down until you find a hill. The beacon is at the top. If it is a very nice day might be busy, so try to avoid those days.

The Altmark Shipwreck (By stubbyd)

he HMV Altmark is a an old fishing boat that ran aground in 1960.

For access / parking you could use the same spot as my other nearby location (Morfa Beach) or you could park at Kenfig Nature Reserve and follow the signs to the smallest lifesaving hut in the UK (Kenfig Sands SLSC), and then head north along the beach itself. Either way, it will take about the same time - a good hour's walk from wherever you park. But if you have a bike capable of use on sand then I suggest that option.

To see the wreck, you will need to ensure the tide is in your favour. Either going out (at least 3hrs since prior high tide) or anytime after and up to about 4hrs before the next high tide.

This link: https://bit.ly/3o0M0p9 should get you real close to the location.

Morfa Beach / Margam Sands (By stubbyd)

This is a lovely long stretch of beach that is popular with dog walkers, and occasional kite board surfers. But it is usually fairly deserted at start and end of day. There are two shipwrecks depending on tide (and I strongly advise checking otherwise there will be no beach). From my mark, you can go left for one, and right for the other, and I will post a separate location for the HMV Altmark. The attached image shows my drone looking right from the footpath towards the steel works.

There are, as you will have walked through it, a large train yard here. From teh right location you can get good shots of goods wagons, etc..

The point I have marked is where the footpath comes out that you get to by leaving the M4 at Junction 38 and taking an immediate left if heading West. Follow that road all the way down to the train tracks and park up. Then cross the lines, and keep going straight. When the road starts to curve you will see a footpath by a fence and then the beach - approx a mile and 20m good walk.

The beach is also accessible from Kenfig Nature Reserve (see another of my locations) and runs all the way from Nottage to the old docks at Port Talbot - all told, just short of 7 miles of sand.

Newark Priory (By Ned)

Newark Priory is a ruined priory on an island surrounded by the River Wey and its former leat (the Abbey Stream) near the boundary of the village (parish lands) of Ripley and Pyrford in Surrey, England. Established between 1189-1199, Newark Priory exists as ruins today and is a scheduled monument and a Grade I listed building. This building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.

GETTING THERE
There is a small, free car park on Newark Lane just to the south of the Priory before you get to the bridge. Walk from there, over the bridge and take a right down the footpath at the Wey Navigation. This footpath is under the control of the National Trust. About a quarter of a mile down the path, there's a lock.

I plonked myself down on a mooring post at the lock and filmed the priory from there. It's a popular footpath, lots of dog walkers... no one challenged me... maybe I was just lucky.

Note that is is nigh on impossible to maintain VLOS when flying from the lock, so take along a couple of observers like I did.

Nettleden (By macspite)

just outside the hamlet of Nettleden, on the road to Ringshall, is a large empty field to your right. There is a one car-sized space off the road which is the field entrance. When I visited the field was fallow with stubble and the fild entrance had a good-sized branch across it in lieu of a gate.

There is a public footpath that runs diagonally across the field to give you a legitimate launch point. It's not the most photogenic location apart from the rather nice tree that stands in splendid isolation - and was quickly snapped for a GADC photo competition

This is an English Heritage site so you can't take off or land within the site without their permission.

I parked in the EH car park (£3 for non-members) and walked to https://w3w.co/cardinal.hotels.satellite, which is on a public footpath. There was a handy tree stump to set up gear clear of the muddy path.

Accessibility: the footpath is accessed via kissing gates and a few steps, and can get very muddy in wet weather.

Hazards: the castle sits on a rocky outcrop roughly 120m high, so your drone ceiling may need adjusting to fly higher. However there were several low-flying light aircraft when I visited, and they may not all maintain full clearance above the castle. Also dogs and dog walkers.

Mount Snowdon, North Wales (By Mavic2Pro)

Quite an easy walk up to Llyn Llydaw on the Miners Track (even for me with a lung missing lol). Park at the Pen-y-pass car park at the top of the Llanberis Pass (A4086). The views of Snowdon are spectacular. From Llyn Llydaw you can stride out and continue the ascent of the mountain if you have the energy (and water!).

Achmelvich Bay (By CSB73)

This is a stunning area of Scotland. Although there is a campsite at the location there are plenty of public paths, open land and rocky outcrops to take off and land from. Most of the Highlands seem to be covered in restricted airspace but this location is well outside this. There are a few small public car parks dotted about the area all within easy walking distance to the coast and beaches.

Carrington Estate, Trafford (By kvetner)

The Carrington Estate covers a wide area between Sale, Carrington and Partington in Trafford. It is privately owned, and crossed by some public footpaths as well as a series of "permissive paths", which the owner allows the public to use for leisure except for certainy prohibited activities (quad biking etc).

Photography opportunities include agricultural land plus former and current industrial sites.

Accessibility: several of the paths are rutted and muddy, especially in winter, and sometimes overgrown in the winter. Walking boots or a mountain bike are advisable. Some paths are only accessible through narrow barriers which may not be suitable for wheelchairs.

Hazards: several overhead power lines especially towards the north west. Other footpath users.

Parking: On the west side of the area, I have parked at Heath Farm Lane https://w3w.co/importing.describes.cheeses, the track heading east is barred to vehicles ok on foot or bicycle, and gives access to many of the paths in the area. On the east edge, I have parked near Firsway Health Centre (https://w3w.co/dreams.term.yard), there is a path heading north-west into the estate about 100m west along Firs Way road.

Take-off spots: The pin indicates an area of hardstanding (https://w3w.co/schooling.jump.awaiting) accessible via paths from Heath Farm Lane. Very secluded but significant magnetic interference from metal in the concrete surfacing. Other take-off spots that I have used include the following, but there are several places adjacent to fields which are suitable so long as you avoid disturbance to other path users:

Southwick, Hampshire (By macspite)

Southwick is a village almost entirely owned by the Southwick Estate. Southwick Hall (HMS Dryad) was the headquarters of SHAEF and was the centre for D-Day planning in WW2

I parked on Back :Lane. passenger side tight to the hedge about 100 yards from the junction with the High Street. There is a driveway that appears to belong to the house with a flagpole in its front garden but it is also the start of a county council footpath. Take it over a footbridge over a tiny stream and the pathway leads to open fields, in part used to grow Christmas trees. From the path you can launch and get enough height to photograph the village or take a 360 pano..

Pick your colour, Red or Gold to enjoy a drink at one of the Lions in the High Street.

There's another nearby site that will give a view of the village with the Defence Police School in the foreground, see details in the discussion thread on Grey Arrows.

Portsdown Hill (Mick's Monster Burgers) (By macspite)

A misaligned pano (the aircraft moved some 55 metres between first and last shot). But ok to illustrate a location on the edge of a HIRTA and close to a beacon.

From the launch point you can see the city of Portsmouth, the top of Portsdown Hill and the land running north toward Petersfield, and, depending on time of day and thus height of sun, see clearly toward Southampton or Bognor. Good place for night shots of Portsmouth.

The launch site I chose was down the slope away from the car park, Be careful of the picnic tables, they contain a lot of metal, stay 10 metre away if you don't want to recalibrate you compass.

The car park is home to the justly famous Mick's Monster Burgers, open 24/7. The location is a very poular meeting place for car and motorbike clubs as well as the general public

River Hamble (By macspite)

This was flown from the Warsash side of the river. There are two car parks in Warsash, both free. The one on Shore road is by the water's edge so is often full, just do another circuit of the one wat system and go into Passage Lane car park instead. To the side of the public conveniences in the north west corner is a footpath which runs north to the ferry that crosses to Hamble and further north along the river bank into the Nature reserve.

If you do manage to park in Shore Road then head south to the open space between the sailing club and the nautical college. The foreshore along the river is Crown estate property so drone-friendly, the land, where not private is either Fareham Borough or Hampshire County Council managed.

It's twenty years since I installed tills at the Rising Sun in Shore Road but it still has a good reputation (on Google at least) so either get in there for a meal and a drink or grab an ice cream from the van in the car park

Epiacum Roman Fort (By Shambleclown)

Whitley Castle (Epiacum) is a large, unusually shaped Roman fort (Latin: castra) north-west of the town of Alston, Cumbria, England. The castrum, which was first built by the Roman Army early in the 2nd century AD, was partly demolished and rebuilt around 200 AD. It appears to have been sited to protect lead mining in the area as well as to support the border defences of Hadrian's Wall.

Unlike most Roman forts that have a "playing-card shape" (rectangular with rounded corners), Whitley Castle is lozenge-shaped to fit the site. Numerous banks and ditches ring the stone ramparts, making it among the most complex defensive earthworks of any fort known in the Roman Empire.

To gain access, which is free, visit the The Nook Farm Shop & Cafe which is on the A689. The landowners own the Shop and had no problem in allowing me to fly there. You do not really appreciate the size of the fort and ramparts until you get in the air. Planning on a future visit to do a map survey.

The Fort is within Fleetlands FRZ and as I was flying at 0800 on a Sunday morning they gave me permission as they do not fly at weekends.

The Racton Ruin, Racton, West Sussex (By macspite)

The Racton Ruin is an 18th C monument on a hill above the Hamlet of Racton. You can fly inside and up the shaft, especially if you turn collision avoidance off when you want to get the aircraft out again. Also it's best to set video to record if you want interior shots! Still, I intend to return ...

Park in the triangle of land at the base of Monument Lane. Make sure you leave space for agricultural vehicles to pass through the gate as the land is actively farmed.

The lane is a restricted byway, closed to motorised vehicles except for farm access. You may encounter walkers, horse riders or mountain bikers who see the lane's gradient as a speed challenge.

The lane is in fairly good repair having once been tarmac. Good shoes are still recommended as, hen you have walked the 500 metres uphill, the tower is on the left in woodland and undergrowth. Please respect the ru as, although not fenced off, it is still private property for which the owner is trying to get planning permission to turn it into a home. It is also a Grade II listed building.

Bosham Quay, West Sussex (By macspite)

Bosham Quay is a popular and crowded tourist attraction on the West Sussex / Hampshire border. Chidham is a quiet area facing Bosham Quay across the Bosham Channel. The marine activity at Bosham can be captured from Chidham without needing to fly more than 500m from your home point.

Park at the Cobnor Farm Amenity Car Park and walk 600m east along the footpath to the bank overlooking the water. Head north on the footpath and pick a spot to fly from. If the tide is on the flood you can engage in the local sport of deciding which car parked on the foreshore will be claimed by the sea while the owner(s) over stay in the pub.

In the summer there is a great deal of boating activity that can be observed and, when you have used up all your batteries, you can visit The Old House at Home for a pint or a meal.

St Thomas à Becket Church, Warblington, Hampshire (By macspite)

The take off location is on a long distance footpath

Park near the church, being careful to leave the farmyard access clear for large vehicles. Walk into the cemetery and head toward the southwest corner where you will find a kiss-gate
opening onto the footpath.

The church and the remains of Warblington Castle along with the farm are what remains of the settlement, the population drifted toward the village of Emsworth two miles eastward.

South lies the water of Chichester Harbour and Hayling Island, to the west is the village of Langstone, now a suburb of Havant which lies to the north.

Rhe footpath continues along the coast ih directions. The two Langstone pubs are in walking distance and also photogenic.

An alternative access to the footpath is to park in the large car park of the Ship at Langstone, walk eastward and, after your flight walk back toward your car - but drink in the Royal Oak, it's a nicer pub!

I parked at the signposted garden centre cafe and walked along the bridleway (also signposted) that runs parallel to the front of the house. It's 2 metres wide and attracts cyclist, horse riders and cyclists. There was time to launch as it;s not a continuous stream of people.

The house and gardens are closed, but projected to re-open at Easter 2021.. The garden centre and case, which I am told is good, are currently open.

There is no drone policy on the website but I imagine that once the grounds are open there will be restrictions. The website has contact information if you want to try your luck.

Ferry Boat, Hayling Island (By macspite)

At this location is a pub - the Ferry Boat, a cafe and a car park which, like all Hayling car parks demands money but never gets money spent on its upkeep. It is a popular place to go, especially in the summer and/or good weather.

The car park is adjacent to the beach and 350 metres across the harbour mouth is the Portsmouth district of Eastney with a marina and a lifeboat station. There is a small ferry for passengers only that runs from the Ferry Boat to a jetty on the Eastney side where a bus connects. No such luck on the Hayling side, it's a 3km walk to the nearest bus stop.

There are concrete strips along the car park edge which conveniently mark car spaces. Their original purpose was to act as bearers and slips for the four Phoenix caissons that were built there - concrete components of the two Mulberry Harbours that were towed across the channel to create artificial harbours on the Normandy coast just a couple of days after D-Day. One of the caissons broke its back before it could be used and lies abandoned 300 metres north of the Hayling ferry jetty.

On a quiet day you can launch from the car park, in the summer it is best to accept the car parking charge, leave the car and wander into the dune area to find a site away from people.

A natural beauty location. With a gritstone outcrop which was a popular climbing location in times past. A tricky site to fly due to heavy woodland surounding the outcrop and the at times heavy traffic of walkers due to the popularity of the High Peak trail walk that passes through the location. Picking less busy times is essential. The location is serviced by three smallish pay and display car parks that get full at peak times but usually fairly empty off peak. Land and car parks are owned by Derbyshire County Council and at time of writing I had uncovered no flight restrictions.

St Andrew, Didling, West Sussex (By macspite)

The church stands isolated, surrounded by agricultural land. Visible in the satellite image for this entry is the public footpath leading south from the church to the Wooded and steep slopes of the South Downs. As sheep are often in the fields dogs must be on leads.

Parking is in the lane leading to the church. There are few spaces for tuning, be prepared to reverse a reasonable distance.

The roads leading through the villages and countryside toward the church are narrow and also have great views. This is a location to enjoy at leisure. It is well worth spending a little time in the simple church itself, places of worship rarelt get plainer or more simple.


From wealdanddownlandchurches.co.uk

"St Andrew, Didling is known as ‘ the shepherds’ church’ because of its location on the northern slope of Didling Hill, close to the ancient drovers’ track across the South Downs. The current building dates largely from the early 13th century, although there are indications of an earlier church on the site.

St Andrew’s was constructed with flint walls, which are part rendered and white painted. There is a small west turret which houses one bell dated 1587. A ‘modern’ timber porch has been added to the north side.

There is no division between the nave and chancel at St Andrew’s, but the north wall of the church returns in at the end of the nave. Externally the quoin of this return looks like Saxon long and short work, but realistically this would be reuse of salvaged masonry. The south church wall continues in a straight line through nave and chancel The two south chancel windows have ogee heads which suggests that this wall was rebuilt in the 14th century. The east and north chancel walls both have two 13th century lancets.
The oak pew ends are original 15th century, but the seats and backs are modern replacements.
The altar rails and the pulpit are 17th century Jacobean.
The oldest item at the church is the Saxon font, which could have been retained from an earlier building on the site, or perhaps brought in from elsewhere. It was hand hewn from a single block of Bracklesham stone, and is thought to be on of the oldest fonts in the country."

Stonehenge (By macspite)

The guys that built Stonehenge picked a very bad site for drone flying.

The Larkhill danger area almost covers the monument itself and much of the land bot under flight restriction or military air traffic zones is owned by the drone-unfriendly National Trust.

The take off / landing point I have marked is on a BOAT, specifically AMES12, Wiltshire County Council designated Byway Open To All Traffic. So you can legally drive either north or south of the A303 on the byway,

I chose the southerly part of the byway. 80 metres from the A303 there is room to both turn a car round and to park it to the side of the byway. The northern route would presumably be as easy but it brings you closer to what may be over-zealous security.
The BOAT can be seen in the short video (taken for a Grey Arrows competition)

There is a very useful thread on Grey Arrows started by ianinlondon about flying around the Salisbury Plain monuments.

If you do go probably best to check the sunrise / sunset times and the times the monument is open. A golden hour flight without people in shot could be a nice experience!

Hayling Oyster Beds (By macspite)

Coming from the mainland drive about half a mile south from the bridge and just after the Esso Garage on your right turn right down the unmade road. There is a car park at the end. Notice boards will give you a brief introduction to the wildlife to be expected in the area.

The oyster beds are what remains of a once thriving industry. An attempt to revive it in the 80's seems to have been a scam allowing 800,000 tons of rubble to be dumped in the harbour (see link below)

The area is just off the popular Hayling Billy Trail which begins at the old station 4 miles south and continues northward to the remains of the old railway bridge. It is popular with both casual and serious walkers and cyclists.The area is a nature reserve so fly responsibly

Northney Marina and Common, Hayling Island, Hampshire (By macspite)

Driving over the bridge to Hayling be prepared to turn left as soon as you reach the island.

Follow the road, there is a sharp right-hand bend at the marina and hotel entrance. Follow the road round, left hand bend and past the houses there is a car park on the left with a 2m height barrier

Park and follow the path northward. I launched from the marker on the map but there is plenty of space to pick your spot.

The marina is one obvious attraction but from 400 feet you can get views of the whole of the island. Chichester and Langstone harbours and, in the distance, the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

The modern housing estate is built on the site of the old Northney Holiday Camp, opened in 1931 by Captain Harry Warner, ex Royal Artillery., When war came it was considered for a PoW camp but the accommodation was judged to austere for German prisoners. It was commandeered by the Navy for use as a barracks. It was named HMS Northney 1 and eventually there were five HMS Northneys on Hayling, confusing enemy and ally alike!

Vandalian Tower, South Harting, Hants (By macspite)

The Vandalian Tower is a monument to failure. Vandalia was a colony planned to thrive in what is now Kentucky but politics prevented its survival. It is rumoured locally that Emma Hamilton would watch for the return of her lover Lord Nelson's fleet from the tower but there must be far better posirions to look out to Spithead and the Solent.

From South Harting head for Chichester on the B2141. Between 1905 and 1924 hill climbs were held regularly at South Harting, I think that this road may have been the one used.
Near the summit is a National Trust car park for Harting Down. There is a discreet noticed that I only saw when leaving saying that you can pay by phone or internet. I haven;t investigated further. Go into the car park as far as you can and go left down toward the road. Park and walk north toward the finger post showing the route of the South Downs Way. Walk left toward the road and cross carefully.

Good walking boots would be useful. You will be walking in an old wood with plenty of fallen branches, leaf mould and fallen whole trees. Stay on the path for around 110 metres and look for the trace of a pathway climbing up through the treesto the open space. It may be an idea to place a marker at the point you emerge from the trees as an easy way to find your way back.

Walk uphill on the mown strip with the fence to your left. There were sheep in the field when I went, dogs aare best left at home. Pick a spot for TOAL and make sure the home is properly recorded at the start of the mission, you are operating fairly close to trees.

Uppark House and some of the land to the west of the tower is National Trust - the tower area is NOT!

The tower is a shadow of its former self and, although you can get low over and into it it's the views of the Hampshire and West Sussex countryside that makes this agood place to fly.

Morecambe Beach (By Doodler)

Plenty of parking on the promenade and access via 2 slipways. Check tides before travelling, it's only an hour or two either side of low tide that you can go 150mtr out from the promenade. There's a natural shallow pool, go to the right of it where it's stoney and you'll find a fairly dry route to it. It's become my home location, walking distance from the house. Used Dronelink to put together the fisheye shot, didn't realise there was a massive fossil underneath me.

Cinderbarrow Picnic Site (By Doodler)

Public picnic area surrounded by the track of Lancaster & Morecambe model engineering society. They run trains most summer weekends when you wouldn't be able to fly, full of people. Occasionally they have a day where they work on their engines and no rides, that was when I went because the only non-society members were parking up to go for a walk.

I checked with the society on Facebook and they said they're ok with a drone. The land is council owned and their drone rules are to follow the drone code.

Lunchtime is the best time if you want to catch a train on the circuit.

Britannia Bridge (By kvetner)

I parked next to St Mary's Church LL61 6AD and accessed the shoreline near the Nelson Statue via a public footpath.

It is also possible to reach the shoreline east of the bridge from a footpath running from the south edge of the Gwesty Carrey Bran Hotel LL61 5YH, or from a slipway on the south of the Menai Strait (footpath starting from Treborth Botanic Garden LL57 2RQ and heading north west). The path down to the slipway can be extremely slippery.

Hazards: power lines run alongside the bridge.

Menai Suspension Bridge (By kvetner)

I parked at the nearby Waitrose (2 hour limit, customers only), but it's worth trying right below the bridge on Beach Road where there is space for a few cars in an area without double yellow lines.

The Wales Coastal Path leads west from Beach Road, and there are opportunities to take of from the side of the path (if not busy) or shoreline below the path (depending on the tide).

Hazards: dog walkers and other path users; buildings to the north.

Accessibility: the coastal path has step free access at this point but there is no step-free access to the shore, and note that Beach Road is steep and has no proper footways.

Portsmouth Harbour (The Hard) (By macspite)

I visited this location early one Sundt morning (07:00) at a low tide and parked on the slipway itself. I doubt that it will be possible to fly from here once the world has woken up!

It is in the coastal scenery category but could equally fit into several other slots - to the north are the buildings of Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard and the preserved ships - HMS Warrior, HMS Victory and HMS Driftwood - the Mary Rose.

I was there to photograph the rilway station but the modern buildings of Gunwharf Quays and the 170 metre Spinnaker Tower are to the south with the Wightlink ferry and the buildings of Old Portsmouth and Spice Island further south and within VLOS - if your aircraft is big enough.

I was there for over half an hour with no-one taking any notice.

Be aware that there is a High Intensity Radio Transmission Area on the chart just to the north. I encountered no problems and suspect that the area tends to be active 9-5 weekdays. But make sure you have your home point established before flying out over the water!

Beware dog walkers and dogs, and note Astley Green housing may be a congested area. Particularly note the nearby Barton City Airport FRZ - low-flying aircraft may stray outside the FRZ.

Manchester Ship Canal near Trafford Centre (By kvetner)

Parking is available on Old Barton Road (M41 7LF), the abandoned road leads west along the south bank of the Manchester Ship Canal. Alternatively, parking may be available at Chill Factore, there is then a walking route along the roads towards the David Lloyd tennis centre.

There are a couple of spots between the old highway and the ship canal to fly from. The old highway itself is used by walkers and cyclists.

Hazards: there is housing to the north of the Ship Canal, and the David Lloyd centre nearby. There is a large area of (inaccessible) waste ground between this spot and Trafford Park where a safe separation distance can be maintained from buildings.

At the time of writing, Barton City Airport accept applications for drone flight permission via an online form; permission is easier during evenings or very early morning when the aerodrome is not in regular use.

No council bylaws present restricting the use of drones or model aircrafts. This park is does not fall under the National Trust either.

As mentioned in the warning, this park can get busy, especially on weekends. Would err on the side of caution flying here.

Hurkling Edge - Broomhead Moor (By Anonymous)

This stunning part of edale is siituated approx 12 miles from sheffield and 8 miles from barnsley and is on the border between south yorkshire and derbyshire.

This area is a mix of private farm land and the peak district national park.

To park in this area simply pull up by the road side or find a layby of which there are plenty.

Hurkling edge and broomhead moor is pretty remote but you will generally come accross people walking,especially on a weekend!

Best to fly this area when there is little or no wind due to the moors exposed nature.

The marker placed on the map is the best place to park.

This are has some beautiful colours that acccentuate the rolling hills and the heather that adourns those hills.

Halls Hill, (South Downs Way) Buriton, Hants (By macspite)

The marker shows the car park, with space for around twenty cars. It has a height barrier set at 2 metres. On a Tuesday afternoon in winter it was still populated with three or four cars. The area is part of the South Downs Way and is popular with walkers and bike riders. It offers similar scenery to the adjacent Queen Elizabeth Country Park which is, unlike this, not free to park (£6/day). Although it is possible to fly from the car park the only way to keep line of site is to fly straight upwards (as I did for the pano that can be seen on Grey Arrows). It is, however, a useful place to stop to access the South Downs Way and open countryside

WORSBROUGH MILL COUNTRY PARK (By Anonymous)

This video made from clips dating back to 2016 when current legislation was not in force.

This area is now classed as a yellow zone and caution should be taken if you plan to fly this area, especially as it is a haven for a massive collection of bird species. I would recomend the flight is taken no lower than a few hundred feet so as not to scare any wildlife, plenty of take off spots around the perimeter of the country park.

There is plenty of on road parking also the worsbrough mill car park.

There is a working water mill that ground there own flower and would recomend a visit into the cafe there too. A great half day out for the family.

HOLME MOSS (By Anonymous)

On the A6024 between the woodhead reservoir and the highest part of yorkshire holme moss. there is at least 2 pull in parking areas you can fly the whole valley just what you see and nobody will bother you. there is a radio repeater station at the top of home moss and for obvious reasons should be steared clear of. This area has to be flown when there is little to no wind as the wind is like a gale in this area when its blowing.

St Hubert's. Idsworth (By macspite)

Park in the rough layby at the bottom of the path leading to the church, be careful not to obstruct the gate. It was only when I planned this flight that I learnt the name of the Saxon church, I've always known it as "The Little Church on the Prairie". It is 30 years short of a thousand years old and is fairly plain inside although it once would have had paintings on all four walls - there is a fragment of a preserved painting on the north wall. The church is still an active place of worship.A footpath runs alongside and it seems to be popular with walkers. The main London to Portsmouth railway line runs along the valley floor, a good place to see 8 and 12 coach trains every half hour or so, interspersed with local services

Sparkes Marina, Hayling Island (By macspite)

This is a stroll from my house so parking is no problem for me. I imagine that you could park in the marina car park - and visit the restaurant for a coffee to legitimise what you are doing.

The creek is accessible at most states of the tide, highwater might be a problem. There is a concrete sea wall with a lot of metal in it so keep reasonably clear else your cpmpass may object.

If you look at the pano you will see a field in the centre, zoom in and you will see a landing pad. That is just 50metres from any house or caravan so compliant with the drone code restrictions. An alternative site at low tide is the exposed sandy area at Black Point - the sailing club, accessible by footpath though parking isn't possible.

Church of Christ St Mary Hill (By stubbyd)

No easy place to park and roads are quite narrow so you may need to park nearby and walk. The nearest layby is at the bottom of the path that leads up to the trig point.

There are public footpaths all round the area, including one up to the trig point (51°30'05.6"N 3°29'42.5"W) from where you can look back down the hill towards the church. Be aware if you opt for this location then there is a windmill a bit further up and phone masts around you.

I would advise only ever visiting with your drone "before or after hours". There is ample parking on the road outside and then you can access the site via the footpath.

I say this, and also mention that permission is unknown as it is technically CADW managed , and as such, they state they don't allow drone flights over or on/from their land. However, the bit of land that is the Taff Trail is queryable. This footpath joins onto the Taff Trail so is always open 24x7.

As ever, I'm only pointing out what I have done and where I have flown - the choice on when or if you do is yours.

Mount St Mary's College (By stubbyd)

As with my recommendation of Barlborough Hall, this is the senior school to that, and absolutely you will need to obtain permission. It's history is that it has always been a school just its emphasis has changed from purely educating people for the priesthood to being a general secondary school.

The site is usually occupied by staff most days of the year and I have dropped the pin on the road entrance to the main car park.

Again, as an ex-pupil I found it easy to obtain permission but your mileage may vary. All you can do is phone up and ask or drop them an eMail as they are generally very responsive.

A suggestion: if of the right age, is to say you are considering sending your child here and want to gain as much perspective as possible :)

Barlborough Hall (By stubbyd)

The site is a 16th century historic family seat of Sir Francis Rhodes but became a perp school just prior to WW2. As such, permission is absolutely needed.

Advice: I suggest asking for permission after the school day is finished or for during school holidays It used to be a boardign school but is now purely for day pupils.. I was granted permission but I am an ex-pupil which may have influnced teh yes - you may have a different result. If you do ask, then the administrative office is a aprt of Mount St Mary's College about 2 miles or so away.

Access & Parking: If permission is granted then the only access is by parkign in the village and walking down the long magnificent driveway which will lead to lots of photo opporunities.

Future info: HS2 will pass very close by so access and permissions may change according to building works for the line.

Monknash Beach (By stubbyd)

Parking: This is in a farmers field and there is an honesty box for parking fee - last known suggested amount was £3. I have dropped the pin in the field for ease of finding.

Access: walk out of the field and down hill on the narrow road. At the Y fork left and climb over the stile and then down the footpath. The walk to the beach should take approx 10m.

Location & Advice: path can get muddy and thus good walkign footwear advised. There is a stream you walk past on the way down and an old mill race is also there - depending on light this can be a good spot for photos.

Because it is a bit of a walk the beach can be deserted but is also popular with dog walkers due to no restrictions. But be aware that if the tide is in, there will be no beach at all, however you can climb the cliffs either side courtesy of the Wales Coastal Path and fly from these instead. Beach is, like most along this section mostly rock.

As a by the by - tried to eMail several weeks before but got no response.

It's hard to tell, but may even fall into the Pendine sands and / or Pembrey operational zone which I couldn't find an owner for, As I was on a public footpath (where my marker is) I took off, grabbed my images and landed.

Sgwd Einion Gam (By stubbyd)

Sgwd Einion Gam / Fall of the Crooked Anvil

Park at Pontneddfechen and walk down the obvious footpath that starts at the side of the Angel Inn.

Follow this path until you reach a foot bridge, cross and trun immediate left. Follow until you reach Sgwd Gwladys - depending on walking speed and number of folks, weather, etc approx
a 30m amble. Spend as long as you like at Lady Falls but once ready, double back a little way and go up above these falls and then just follow the stream. Disatnce wise it is about another ¼ to ½mile but will likely take you a good 30 to 45m full on coasteering. My advice - stash your walking boots and socks somewhere and bring some water shoes and just go up the stream bed.

There are some very sketchy paths and in fact this waterfall is not even listed on my OS Map and I can only conclude they don't wnat folks to visit as it is quite dangerous to reach.

Eventually you will reach a stunning waterfall and if, like me, you will have the entire place to yourself for however long your visit. I was there for 2hrs and saw not another soul until I got back to Sgwd Gwladys.

Again, be aware of weather and if a lot of heavy rainfall then the river will be in full spate and harder to cross which you will need to do several times even if you stick to the footpaths.

Finnich Glen (By stubbyd)

Parking: There is a tiny lay-by which will take 2 or 3 cars but ¼mile up the road is a junction with more parking there.

Access: access is via style and / or gate (if fixed) and is through a forested area. This can be very wet and muddy and treacherous underfoot so extreme caution is advise as you are near to a gorge. If you follow the footpath for approx 10 / 15m walk you will see an obvious cleft the descends into teh gorge and it has a staricase [fx: cough]. When I was there this taircase was slippy, non-existant in places and plain suicidal in others. Hopefully it will get fixed up due to the interest generated by Outlander.

Weather: Pay attention to the wetaher as flash floods occur in these gorges and you may not get the same access as myself after a relatively dry summer / autumn.

Bottom Line: I do not advise tackling this unless you are either nuts, a regular hill / cliff scrambler or both. I got down but typically wear full wet weather gear so I was sliding at some points. Suffice to say it's a "little bit iffy".

Flying Your Drone:this is a bit like the access and I don't advise doing so or not doing so, just that I did. Be sure your manual flying skills are up to scratch though as my drone would not get a reliable GPS lock due to a. being in a gorge and b. possibly the iron ore in the rocks messing with it. I tried to hover at one point to grab a 360 pano and my drone simply would not remain stable and drifted several metres in random directions.

HOWEVER: if you do go then what you are greeted with is stunning red and green cliffs and a red stream / river running through. If you decide to wade upstream then you can get to the devil's pulpit (the lump or rock middle top in my image).

Would I go again - hell yes.

Church Fields, Hayling Island (By macspite)

You can park in the layby outside St Mary's Church or in the one outside the school on the opposite side of the road. Both school and the graveyard are marked sensitive on the dronescene map.

As you walk through the churchyard you will notice a large yew tree which is one of the many claiming to be "one of the oldest in England."

The field itself is boring but it is central to Hayling and from 400 feet the whole of the coastline can be appreciated. It's also a good place to test aircraft; not toofar from the road and the natives are,in the main, friendly.

Be aware that there are low-level power lines running across the field to the electricity sub-station in the south-east corner.

Parking is extremely limited at the bottom but there is a large carpark at the top of a very steep hill.

I bumped into the owner of the 'Room With a View' Hotel and asked for permission to fly. He had no issues but technically you wouldn't need to ask.... but as he was there it was easy enough to do so. I happened to be there in their off-season so they wer actually closed, so my advice is check before you fly as it could be busy. Also, just around the headland are two warning triangles for beacons - these, from my visit, appeared inactive / unloved so may not cause any issues but best to be aware.

Eastoke Point, Hayling Island (By macspite)

There is no getting away from walking for this one. Best look at Google Maps for Southwood Road - park as close to Bosmere Road at the Eastern end as possible and get onto the beach at the entrance at top of Bosmere Road. Alternative is to park in Mariners Walk - there is a red dog excrement bin that marks the top of the path down to the beach!

The beach is popular in summer, out of season it is quieter with a number of dog walkers and a few cyclists. I've been polite to them when flying, showing the interested ones what it's all about so you shouldn't get amy hassle from the public.

The nature reserve is best avoided for flying over as it is classed as sensitive (especially during the breeding season), but views over can be obtained. Occasionally surfers are active at the harbour entrance, there is a fair amount of pleasure craft, both power and sail, that pass through the narrow channel. Tides can run up to seven knots at springs, not the best area for swimming,

Further north is Hayling Lifebat station - D-Class and a 75 - and Hayling Island Sailing Club which has events most summer weekends if you want to video dinghy racing.

If you take time away from your drone you may spot Highland Cattle and deer in the reserve, kestrels egrets, swans and possibly sea eagles amongst the birdlife and seals feeding in the harbour mouth.

Hayling Island Rail and Road Bridges (By macspite)

The marker shows the somewhat conealed entrance to a parking area opposite the service station that is on the left as soon as you have got onto the island. It is a popular spot to park for walkers and dog walkers looking to follow the route of the old railway line. There is an area of grass amongst the trees that I use for take off. Check for cyclists zooming past!

The road bridge is on your right, to the left (west) is the embankment of the old Hayling Billy Line extending northward into Langstone Harbour. The wooden trestles of the old bridge can be seen encased in concrete which was done to strengthen the bridge, there iare the remains of the turntable that was used to open the bridge to boat traffic between Langstone and Chichester harbours. At one point there was a scheme to constuct a canal to link into the Chichester canal, itself to be extended to London. Thus goods could travel from Portsmouth Docks direct to the capital by barge.

The rail bridge and the associated branch line was closed in 1963 as part of the swingeing cuts imposed on the railways by the then Minister of Transport, Ernet Marples (Of the roadbuilding and construction company Marples) following Dr Beeching's recommendations. Although the line was slightly in profit the cost of needed repairs to the bridge was the reason given for closure

Hayling Island Bridge and Northney (By macspite)

There is parking to the east of the bridge in a small layby. The mudflats of Chichester Harbour may be exposed depending on the state of the tide. I have flown several times from this site without problems, I assume the layby belongs to the local authority, Havant Borough Council.

The bridge is a replacement for a wooden trestle which had a weight limit. Passengers on buses onto and off the island had to get off the vehicle and walk across with the bus then waiting for them on the other side. To the west of the bridge are the remains of the rail bridge, demolished after closure of the branch line in 1963.

The bridge separates Langstone and Chichester harbours.

The pin shows one parking area with a 6 foot height restriction. Park on the verge if you have a high vehicle. The area is popular with dog walkers and the lake is leased by an angling club so be courteous to other users.

This is one of the items on the Hayling Island WW2 trail and was one of the defences of nearby Portsmouth. It was maintained as an anti-aircraft site into the Cold War area. The barrack buildings were demolished leaving a flat area including the parade ground, two magazines are still standing. Two of the gun emplacements have been "sanitised" but a third (behind the wire shutting off the lake) is much as it was left when the army withdrew from the site in the 1950s.

Parking on the other side of the road to the priory.

I have placed the marker for where I stood and flew from. Technically I didn't need landowner permission as the land was publicly accessible - however, as I'd visited the fascinatring little church (lots of history to it) and bumped into one of teh churchwardens I asked and told him what I wanted to do and he said no problems... with one caveat. He was concerned about the privacy of the owner of Little Malvern Court (opens occasionally to the public - check hours). Thus this initial shot I'm sharing shows very little of the court.

However, when I contacted Lady Berrington (current owner) she wanted to purchase a copy of one of my photos so make of that as you will. However, on open days the area could be buisy with people.

The estate has the Wales Coastal Path crossing its lands and the remnants of Dunraven Castle (that was still in use until the late 50's but essentially is foundations / ruins now). The area is popular with walkers and surfers and you will almost always find a fellow droner or photographer somewhere around. The image is the of the iconic 'Withces Point' as it looks like a witches hat from the air. This part almost always has folks fishing.

1. Park by Cynghordy Station (station is too grand a word for it) and then floolw footpaths but you'll need an OS map and stout footwear. Essentially you need to get up and by the wooded area - here or herabouts: http://bit.ly/36dGsiE

2. Park under the bridge and walk up the lane a little to get a reasonable view. There are a few lay-by's and or gates into fields to set yourself up in. If you park here, there is also a tiny chapel and graveyard which may or may not be open.

Derwent Edge Peak District (By Anonymous)

Oned of the most beautiful breath taking scenic places that you will ever see. The right of way is sandwiched between national trust and privatly owned land sitting at 1600 feet above sea level. This is by far one of the hardest places to access, free parking on the a57 at moscar and can be a 1/2 hour hike to make your way all along the edge. so not for the faint hearted,but well worth the effort. best place to launch is by the wheelstones rock formations, nice an quiet and nobody will bother you. a word of warning this area can and will be subject to extremly strong wind gusts above 40 mph as its so exposed so best on a day when you have light variable wind.

Coity Castle (By stubbyd)

There is limited parking outside the front of the castle which is technically only open until sunset (caretaker can be a bit variable) but there is open common land between the castle and the church and some parking is available by the church. There is a footpath here that leads to the other entrance and also to a gate into the field where I fly from.

If you visit, be aware that a prison is fairly close by and the DJI app will throw up a warning but you can fly, just need to acknowledge you are responsible. I've never had an issue with any locals and as my image shows, some lads are playing footy in the grounds after closing but ddin't even bat an eyelid at me.

If you visit - give me a shout and I'll try and join you, and then perhaps share a pint in the Six Bells (also in shot) in the village afterwards.

This is an abandoned lime quarry with lots of the machinery still 'intact' - and it is a fab Urbex location. I've marked where to park on Waun Bant Road - which is limited. You then have to cross a fence with barbed wire but this fence and barbed wire are both illegally added by the local farmer that doesn't like folks next to his fields.

Who owns the land is one of those local myths, but it isn't the farmer, and it was most likely the now defunct Stormy Stone & Brick Company. Lots to see / shoot here iuncluding a waste water pool (where my old P3SE is likely languishing).

Aberthaw Lime Works (By stubbyd)

Limited parking is available by the railway bridge just off Fontygary Road - also a layby approx 100m down provides a few more spots. Either way, a short downhill walk, throogh / over a style and wooded paths leads you to the back of teh Lime Kiln building and a pond.

Technically you are inside the Cardiff FRZ so I would call Cardiff ATC and St Athan's ATC (if daytime) to advise so no panic sets in. I have written permission 'in principle' that it should be fine to fly here just pre-advise on the day to the ATC.

Also, be aware that there is quite a bit of wildlife here. If tide is out then there is a huge beach the other side of the sea wall and a short stroll takes you to Aberthaw Power Station (where more parking is also available).

Yach club at end of road and to the left a public path round the club into a very large currently empty field with 2 paths over a style to public right of ways. Nobody much to bother you and lots of boats with tall masts to negotiate around and the river of course. A good place for beginners with open space and a few challenges if you want.

Free Parking at TF6 5AL (approx.) MTB, Dog friendly, gentle 1mile walk to summit up reasonable path.
Occasionally No Fly due to Paragliders.

Height: 407m (1335ft)

Excellent views of Shropshire and Wales from the top.

The Wrekin is the subject of a well-known legend in Shropshire folklore.
A giant called Gwendol Wrekin ap Shenkin ap Mynyddmawr with a grudge against the town of Shrewsbury decided to flood the town and kill all its inhabitants. So he collected a giant-sized spadeful of earth and set off towards the town. When in the vicinity of Wellington he met a cobbler returning from Shrewsbury market with a large sackful of shoes for repair. The giant asked him for directions, adding that he was going to dump his spadeful of earth in the River Severn and flood the town. "It's a very long way to Shrewsbury," replied the quick-thinking shoemaker. "Look at all these shoes I've worn out walking back from there!" The giant immediately decided to abandon his enterprise and dumped the earth on the ground beside him, where it became the Wrekin. The giant also scraped the mud off his boots, which became the smaller hill Ercall Hill nearby. Ironically Shrewsbury is subjected to flooding from the River Severn on frequent occasions naturally.

This is outside of the no fly zone for Southampton airport however the planes do fly directly over Hythe when going in to land there so height must be conservative.

Halnaker Windmill is accessed up a long track which is also a public footpath. There is a small parking area on the A285 at the junction with Dredge Lane.

I used the wide public footpath / track on the approach to take off an land ( just out of shot bottom right) as it gives a good view up and down the path and is far enough away from the Windmill not to breach the drone code. Just a note that this is just outside the Chichester/Goodwood FRZ.
