TOAL was from Crown foreshore so no permission was required. You can park on the road nearby and access down some steps. Depending on time of year, there are parking exclusions, but carparks are available a short walk away. I have relatives who live 2mins walk from the beach, so no issue for me.

This was my first flight outside of a big field, and it was perfect. Views across to the Isle of White, as well as Highcliffe Castle, beach and a nice forest made for plenty to check out.

Victoria Bridge (Severn Valley Railway) (By firstadekit)

Firstly a big shout out to @Photobird for the heads up about this great TOAL location.

It's in a huge field with public footpath going through, so plenty of room for capturing the heritage railway and the river severn. Either side of the bridge offers good views but more accessible space on the side where the marker is, and the tree's don't obstruct the railway too much.

Nearest parking is just after the Harbour Inn. Which puts you on the correct side of the river. It said it was £3 to park, but no one was there when we visited. I've no idea if the gate remains open all day so it could be park at your own risk. The play it safe option is to park in Upper Arly Car Park the other side of the pedestrian bridge (not accessible by vehicles) here it is £2 to park all day.

Only other thing to be aware of is Pound Green Microlights fly within the same space. If you're capturing trains you won't want to be getting too high anyway.

Also the castle is closed over the winter months which should make flying easier as there are no visitors

Godstow Abbey (By MasterYeti)

Godstow Abbey (Benedictine Nunnery) ///donor.posed.nails was originally built in 1133. It was suppressed in 1539 in the second act of dissolution and converted into a house which was then occupied until 1645. After bad damage during the English civil war it was left to fall into ruin.
Not much remains at all of it now but it is a great location to get airborne as it has some fantastic aerial views across the Thames to Oxford from a distance.
I flew around 12pm and was on site for around 1½ hrs but it was getting busy fairly rapidly with walkers etc. I had no issues with anyone, no-one questioned me and I was left in peace to fly but I would recommend you pick an early or a late slot if you want to avoid pedestrians.
Very close proximity to the Trout pub made famous by Inspector Morse :) (you have to pass by it on foot in order to get to the Abbey form the car park) and it is on the main Thames path so great place to have a meal, a pint and a stroll.

Kelston Roundhill is an ancient barrow, and it is believed that the word Kelston translates as 'Hill of the Celts. ' This small, rural village lies between Bath and Bristol, and is well-known amongst local walkers thanks to the intersection of several public footpaths at its heart.

This castle is privately owned and as such they do not permit drone activity.
On exiting the castle complex I parked in a lay-by about 400m from the castle here I did my TOAL.
I did however keep quite high as you can see as the Castle has a falconry.
Would you believe it, as soon as I took off they let the birds out. So not wanting to disturb them, I kept my distance.

The car park is £3 for all day.

The castle entrance fee for the house and gardens is £12.50 for adults under 60.

Elmley Castle (By clinkadink)

The site is on private land, but there is a bridle way leading up from the village of Elmley Castle (the same name as the original hill fort). I parked at the village and walked about an hour north at 52.06607243, -2.03880082. TOAL was from the bridle way at 52.063547, -2.042863.

Elmley Castle was a ringwork and bailey fortification built shortly after the Norman Conquest. It was acquired by the Beauchamp family in the early twelfth century and they rebuilt it in stone soon after. Later it became their Worcestershire caput but, when William de Beauchamp inherited the Earldom of Warwick in 1268, Elmley Castle was neglected and fell into ruin.

Kemerton Camp & Parsons Folly (By clinkadink)

Parking was lightyears away at Elmley Castle, a small village to the North East here 52.06607243, -2.03880082. TOAL was on the hill.

Kemerton Camp is a hillfort on the top of Bredon Hill in Worcestershire. With a steep escarpment dropping away on the north side of the Hill, it has two sets of ramparts and ditches to the south. The inner ramparts possibly date to 300BC.

Excavations at Kemerton Camp in the 1930s uncovered, near the entrance to the inner ramparts of the fort, the burial place of some 50 slaughtered men, along with a great number of weapons. Are they evidence of a last stand against the Roman invasion, or of some internecine strife between warring tribes ?

Adjacent to Kemerton Camp is a small stone tower called Parsons Folly (or the Banbury Stone Tower) which was built in the mid-18th century for John Parsons, squire of Kemerton Court and intended as a summer house.

Devil's Quoits (By MasterYeti)

Devil's Quoits (///textiles.haystack.spreading) is a reconstructed Neolithic (Stone Age) henge consisting of 28 stones (the quoits) in a large circular enclosure defined by a bank and internal ditch. built around 4900 to 4600 years ago using the local stone.

Free parking is available at ///glue.reflector.requests . From the main road follow the signs to the Dix Pit household recycling centre and the car park is about 50m past the centre entrance on the left. Access to the Quoits is along a maintained gravel/dirt path linked directly to the car park.

It is a good clear spot to fly but it did seem to be a hotspot for small aircraft sightseeing the stones. I saw at least 3 small fixed wings and a helicopter in close vicinity in the 1 1/2hrs while I was there, nothing close enough that forced me to down the drone but keep your eyes and ears open wide if you do go there to fly.

The path does also continue past the Quoits and if you fancy the stroll it takes you on a nice walk right around the adjacent lake and finishes back at the car park.

Buscot Lock & Weir (By MasterYeti)

There are two ways to approach here. First is a very short walk from Buscot where there is a car park ///cowering.awakes.navy . Come out of the carpark on foot and follow the road north to the site. The easiest place to TOAL is from the field just south of the weir pond ///widely.coasting.move
You can also walk on through to the lock and weir along a small alley path just north of the pond along the track ///pound.tint.times.

The second way with a longer walk is to park in the layby at ///staples.regulator.pockets walk in to the entrance and right which will take you along and under the bridge on to the Thames path. Follow the path passing a WW2 block house along the way and it will take you to the lock and weir, total distance 1.8km. TOAL from the same location as the first route.

There is a backup TOAL spot if the the field by the pond is busy ///brotherly.helps.chicken where you should be able to stay well clear of anyone. It is a short walk over the lock and a bridge.

The valley is covered with hundreds (maybe thousands) of Sarsen stones. It is from here that the Sarsen stones used to build Stonehenge (17 miles south) and Avebury (2 miles west). I must have been walking for an hour through the valley before reaching the end. The stones were dumped here at the end of the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago.

Picquet Hill, Edington (By clinkadink)

Parking was in a lay-by at the bottom of Sandly Lane. About a 20 walk up the lane and hill (which is quite steep). TOAL was from the top of the hill. The views are amazing. Be careful of the FRZ that starts about 300m south of the hill.

2.75KM to the west, is Bratton Camp. The Viking warlord, Guthred, and the viking army seized the hillfort here, and took Wessex. King Alfred and his anglo-saxon army defeated Guthred and his men at the 'Battle of Ethandun' (now Edington), on Picquet Hill. Alfred then reclaimed Wessex.

Staunton Harold Reservoir (By firstadekit)

Onsite Car Park. £3 at time of writing for all day.

As far as I'm aware Severn Trent Water have no policy specific to recreation/hobbyist flying, where as for commercial flying you must apply for permission.

Although check the discussion thread on Grey Arrows as this may have changed since time of writing.

The National Forest also have a stake in this location, but again I can see no specfic policy regarding drones at time of writing.

The TOAL marker is located on some picnic benches near the water tower. Early in the day or late evening will be your best bet to fly here without having too many members of the public in your shot for the water tower.

The rest of the reservoir is also nice and a pleasant circular walk around the site and into Calke Park can be done to make a day of it. If you decide to do that, take fluids and a picnic.

Calke Park (By firstadekit)

Dubious one but you can make your own choices.

I have put the TOAL marker on a Severn Trent Public Car Park. This particular car park is free, but check the Severn Trent website for opening hours.

From here do as you wish in terms of TOAL outside of National Trust land. It's a little confusing on the map as there's the red NT layer and larger yellow area. I assume (perhaps incorrectly I'm sure someone who knows better will be along on the discussion thread soon) that yellow is good to go taking sensible precautions, but expect to be asked to leave if you're approached by an NT ranger.

You may be better sticking to the road near where you parked. There are tree's so you will need a spotter or two if you intend to fly over the abbey and stay within the Drone Code.

Swarkstone Bridge (By firstadekit)

Swarkstone Bridge is a medieval bridge crossing the River Trent between the villages of Swarkestone and Stanton by Bridge, about 6 miles south of Derby. It is currently Grade I Listed and a scheduled monument.

Right next to the TOAL location on the map is a gate with a public footpath through a field. If you're lucky you should be able to park right next to it as long as no one else is there.

The field can sometimes have livestock in it, so you may only want to make this an on-route location rather than a primary destination to fly.

Walpole Bay Tidal Pool (By gimbalflight)

Parking is free just to the east of the pool in the carpark. Quite a steep single road down so be careful of pedestrians and other road users.

TOAL was from the beach. It was quiet but I imagine in the summer would be much busier.

Info on Walpole Bay Tidal Pool taken from The Historic England Webpage. https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1421296?section=official-list-entry

Summary
A tidal sea bathing pool built in 1937.

Reasons for Designation
Walpole Bay Tidal Pool, one of two tidal pools designed by Margate's borough engineer in 1937, constructed in concrete blocks reinforced by reused iron tram rails, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Structural engineering interest: an ambitious project because of its scale, the weight of each concrete block, and that work needing to be carried out day and night because of the tides; * Scale and design: impressive in scale and shape, occupying 4 acres and three sides of a rectangle, the sides 450 feet long diminishing towards the seaward end which was 300 feet long; * Social historical interest: provided an improvement to sea bathing at the period of the greatest popularity of the English seaside; * Degree of intactness: intact apart from the loss of the two diving boards which do not often survive; * Group value: situated quite near the remains of the 1824-6 Clifton Baths (Grade II), an 1935 lift and the other 1937 tidal pool.

History
Walpole Bay Tidal Pool was built in 1937, one of two tidal pools constructed at the same time in Margate, the other at Marine Terrace opposite Cliftonville Lido. Both were constructed in order to make it possible for large numbers of people to bathe in the sea at all states of the tide because, owing to the gradual slope of the beach and the considerable tidal range, low water mark at spring tides could be as far as 300 yards from the promenades.

The pool covers over four acres and its dimensions are 450ft long, 300ft wide at the seaward end and 550ft long at the landward end. It cost circa £7,000. The top level of the wall was arranged so that the pool was completely submerged at every tide, ensuring a sufficient change-over of sea water twice a day. Fresh water springs rise from the beach within the walls providing fresh water from the floor of the pool. Originally two diving boards were provided.

PLAN: three sides of a rectangle, longer at the landward side where there is no wall. There is a break near the landward side of the western wall. The dimensions are 450ft at the sides, 300ft at the seaward side and 550ft at the landward end.

DESCRIPTION: built of interlocking concrete block walls with concealed iron tram rails running about 5ft deep into the chalk foundation and up to within one foot of the top of the wall. The wall is two or three feet wide, about two or three feet deep at the landward side but increases in depth towards the seaward end to enclose a pool about seven feet high at this end. There are two-foot wide overflows in the top course six inches below the top of the wall so the top water line is always six inches below the top. There are four flights of steps with iron handrails and three penstocks are fitted in the outer walls in order to empty the pool, which took about two hours.

Fovant Badges (By MavicAir)

The Fovant Badges are a set of regimental badges cut into a chalk hill, Fovant Down, near Fovant, in southwest Wiltshire, England. They are located between Salisbury and Shaftesbury on the A30 road in the Nadder valley; or approximately 1⁄2 mile (800 m) southeast of Fovant. They were created by soldiers garrisoned nearby, and waiting to go to France, during the First World War; the first in 1916.[1] They are clearly visible from the A30 road which runs through the village. Nine of the original twenty remain, and are scheduled ancient monuments and recognised by the Imperial War Museum as war memorials.[1] Further badges have been added more recently.

Maes Knoll Hillfort (By clinkadink)

Parking was about 50m from the gate on Norton Lane here 51.386060, -2.574982. TOAL was from the hillfort. There is a public gravel footpath from the gate leading to the hillfort. It's about a 15 minute walk up the hill.

Maes Knoll Camp hillfort is a semi-triangular Iron Age enclosure of approximately 26 acres. The original entrance is thought to be at the Southern tip of the triangle, though access may also have been gained via the gap between the ‘Tump’ and the Northern scarp. The Tump is a truly massive cross-bank-and-ditch earthwork, designed to cut off access from the West. It stands 25ft above the interior of the fort, 50ft above the ditch bottom, and is 200ft in length.

Corgarff Castle (By mynameisjoe)

There is a carpark with easy access. However, on leaving the carpark, I noticed a NO DRONES sign. By this time I had already got my video and photos, the castle was also closed at this time and there were no other visitors to upset. The public road is not far, so TOAL from a distance is easy if you don't want to chance harassment
First built in the mid 1500s the tower was the fortified home of the Forbeses of Corgarff. It became derelict until 1645 where it was restored and occupied by the Marquis of Montrose before being set on fire by the Jacobites to stop the government forces from using it. In the mid 1700s the tower became a barracks for the Redcoats who were hunting down Jacobite sympathisers in Strathdon, and also stamping out illegal whisky stills and smuggling.

Lecht Mine (By mynameisjoe)

Situated in an area of oustanding natural beauty, around a mile from The Lecht Ski Centre. There is a small car park and the mine is an easy 10 minute walk although the ground can be quite wet.
The iron ore mine was originally opened in 1730 by the York Buildings Company of London, but closed seven years later due to significant losses. Re-opened in 1841 by the Duke of Richmond & Gordon, it was the largest manganese mine in Scotland but only survived another 5 years before closing for good. The surrounding area was used extensively to hide illicit whisky stills in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The whisky was then spirited away using one of the many "Whisky Roads" that criss cross The Ladder Hills.

Woolstonbury Hill (By gimbalflight)

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

TOAL was situated just south of the National trust boundary. Near to six ways.


Extract from The National Trust Website:-

Wolstonbury Hill is the ‘jewel in the crown’ when it comes to wild orchid spotting on the Devil’s Dyke Estate and it is the only place in Sussex where you are likely to see the man orchid.

Many other chalk downland flowers and butterflies can be seen here in the summer too and Wolstonbury is also home to the highest concentration of anthills on the South Downs. The strange humps that pepper the hill each house around 100,000 ants and can be seen all year round.

There is history here too in the form of a Bronze Age camp, cross dykes, sunken trackways and the scars of a 20th century rifle range.

The South Downs Way, which passes nearby, is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse-riders. There are a number of bridle paths crossing the hill and these offer challenging climbs and routes leading to Hurstpierpoint, Clayton and Hassocks.

Ditchling Becon (By gimbalflight)

TOAL was from the footpath east of the site just outside the National trust boundary.

Ditchling Beacon is located 7 miles to the north of Brighton and just south of the village of Ditchling. At 248 metres above sea-level, Ditchling Beacon is the highest point in East Sussex and offers commanding 360 degree views from its summit. Look south out to sea, north across the Weald or east-west across the Downs.

As the name suggests, Ditchling Beacon was once the site for a warning beacon. Visible for miles around, the Beacon would be maintained ready to light in times of imminent invasion.

The site is also of archaeological interest, with remains of an Iron Age hillfort.

Neighbouring Ditchling Down lies to the west of Ditchling Beacon, and is a prime example of chalk downland. Walk the path along the scarp slope, passing through the disused chalk pits grazed by sheep and dotted with wild flowers throughout spring and summer.

Parking and TOAL at 51.543352, -2.342538

A rectangular multivallate fort approximately 11 acres in sizemade up of a double set of ditches and ramparts. The origins can be traced as far back as the Iron Age, and is thought the Romans later strengthened an use the camp as a frontier post. The scarp slope of the Cotswold Hills provided a natural defence on its western side, the remaining defences being the high double ramparts. In AD577 the Saxon army camped here before the battle at nearby Dyrham. In 1471, Edward IV rested here before moving on to destroy the army of Margaret of Anjou at the Battle of Tewkesbury.

Compton Bassett House (By clinkadink)

Parking and TOAL at 51.444745, -1.955004

Robbie Williams sold this back in January for £7 million, over £1 less than what he bought for in 2008.

In 1659 Compton Bassett House was a U-shaped building which was open to the south-east. Its main range, lying north-east and south-west, had a hall at its north-east end and, south-west of the hall, a screens passage with an entrance at the west corner of the courtyard. The lord of the manor, Sir John Weld, was said in 1672 to have spent nearly £10,000 on building and, presumably between 1663 and 1672, the courtyard was built over and the house was made rectangular with sides of 130 ft. and 110 ft. and given projecting corner towers. The mullioned and transomed windows were probably retained in the old part of the house; sashes were used in the new south-east front. The walls of the house were of soft white stone; one side, probably the north-west front which was the main entrance front in 1760, had been renewed in brick by 1814. Later in the 19th century the rest of the house was encased in brick, and embattled parapets were added; those changes were presumably made by George Walker Heneage (d. 1875), who restored the house.

In the early 1930s Compton Bassett House was demolished and in 1935 its stable block was converted to a house, also called Compton Bassett House and extensively altered in the early 1990s when it was owned by the architect Sir Norman Foster. In 1994 it belonged to Mr. John Pringle. John Pringle was married to Liz Pringle (nee Isobel Ann Benn),the Canadian fashion model.

Castle Combe (By clinkadink)

Parking at 51.491541, -2.229262, TOAL at 51.492989, -2.230306

Castle Combe is a quintessentially English village often named as the ‘prettiest village in England.' The village sits in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north west Wiltshire.

Castle Combe has featured regularly as a film location, most recently in The Wolf Man, Stardust and Stephen Spielberg’s War Horse. It was also used in the original Dr Doolittle film.
The village has a rich history and the houses are made up of the honey coloured Cotswold stone, typical for a village of this area.

Within Castle Combe you’ll find a Market Cross and St Andrew’s Church which dates from the 13th century. The church houses a faceless clock which is reputed to be one of the oldest working clocks in the country. You’ll also find a couple of pubs and a luxury hotel with a golf course within the village.

Stroll along the village to the bridge and you’ll not only enjoy the views but may be able to purchase homemade cakes, sweets or bunches of flowers from outside the locals’ houses. Stop at the bottom of the village by the bridge and enjoy a great photographic moment too!

On the edge of the village is the Castle Combe Circuit where drivers have the opportunity to test out different vehicles, drive your own car or motorbike around the circuit or tackle the Rally course. There are also a host of events throughout the year at the circuit including race days for both cars and motorbikes.

There are several options for places to stay in and around Castle Combe with Bed and Breakfasts, self-catering properties and inns. It is also within easy reach of Chippenham and Corsham, and not far away from the M4 motorway.

Look out for tours that include Castle Combe including Mad Max Tours and Around and About Bath which both include the village as part of a wider Wiltshire tour.

Martinsell Hill Camp (By clinkadink)

Parked about 700m North East of the summit in the free car park. The walk takes about 20 minutes up a grassy track. TOAL was from the summit. There's a wooden bench at the top, with amazing 270 degree views of Salisbury Plain and Pewsey Downs.

At 289m Martinsell Hill is the highest point on the Pewsey Downs and provides a panoramic view of Salisbury Plain; on a clear day the spire of Salisbury Cathedral can be seen 25 miles away on the southern horizon.

On the summit plateau of the hill are the traces of an Iron Age hillfort of 32 acres, known as an univallate fort from the single boundary ditch and rampart that surrounds it. The Mid Wilts Way skirts the southern boundary of the fort.

Some 1km to the south-west, along a ridge forming a natural causeway, is another but much smaller Iron Age hillfort. Built on a promontory, it is known as the Giant’s Grave from the significant barrow-like rampart at its centre.

The steep slopes which surround both hillforts reinforce the defensive nature of the manmade ramparts. Nevertheless, modern scholarship suggests that in general Iron Age hillforts were as much settlements for ceremonial purposes as for communal refuge, and the ridge between the hillforts is believed to have been a site for competitive feasting.

In much later centuries it became a custom on Palm Sunday for teams of local youths to hit a ball from the base to the summit of Martinsell using primitive hockey sticks. Oranges were then thrown from the top for the youths to charge down after them, and another sport was to use horses’ skulls to glissade down the steep slopes!

Nice little carpark with seating and picnic tables. Well maintained paths will take you to the waterfall and beyond if you fancy a nice walk through the woods, if you intend on taking a dog or children, beware, it can be a dangerous plunge down the steep sided hill and into the water. It can be quite busy at weekends and evenings in the summer, but I've found people very friendly and interested.

Bartley Reservoir (By firstadekit)

Park on Scotland Lane near the TOAL marker, there should be plenty of road parking space. The TOAL marker point has 3 benches you can use to sit from. As there is little around you, you can keep excellent VLOS especially if you have some strobe lights.

Obviously lots of birds around so be mindful of that. They seemed disinterested in the drone on the day I flew in late March, but this might not be the case if they are nesting or looking after young. So fly over the water at your own risk.

St. Oswalds Church Luddington (By speatuk)

The parish church is a Grade II listed structure, built in 1855 in Gothic Revival style. The nave has four bays, with aisles to the north and south, and a porch adjoining the south aisle. The chancel has two bays, to which is attached a vestry, and at the western end there is a three-stage tower with an octagonal broach spire. Construction is of sandstone and limestone ashlar masonry, with the roofs clad in Welsh slate. Internally, there are several English church monuments which predate the construction, including a white marble Roccoco tablet to the Worsop family dating from 1758, a wall tablet to Elizabeth Lister dating from 1729, and a tablet commemorating Captain Augustus Webb, who died from wounds during the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava in 1854. The building replaced an earlier medieval church, details of which are provided by an illustration made by C Nattes in 1794, and now in the collection of Lincoln City Library. It was cruciform in shape, with a wooden steeple.
Access is via a single track road only a small amount of parking. Walk down the beautiful tree lined walk way for 150 yards then the view of the church opens up.

Bathampton Toll Bridge & Weir (By clinkadink)


Parking at the top of the lane on London Road West, to avoid paying the £1 toll and joining the queue of traffic trying to cross the bridge. TOAL from Bathampton Mill beer garden (I bought a pint of coke for £3.55).

Bathampton Weir on the River Avon is about 600 years old, built originally to provide enough depth for the waterwheels for the early grain mills on both sides of the river. You can still see the hole where the original wheel was housed on the south side of the river. This is now situated in the garden of Bathampton Mill, a large, riverside pub. The weir is a favourite place for wild swimming!

Bathampton Toll Bridge is an arch bridge carrying a minor road across the River Avon near Bathampton, to the east of Bath. It is a Grade II listed structure. The bridge was built of Bath stone by Hickes and Isaac in 1872, for the Bridge Company Turnpike Trust.

The remains of this large and luxurious Roman villa lie in a peaceful setting near the Cotswold Way.

Mosaic pavements (preserved within a modern building) hint at the villa’s opulence in Roman times.

Just to the left of the Pin is an ideal place for parking (free), allowing easy access to the river. There is a towpath that (going North) takes you to the Bann roadbridge (a reasonably photogenic bridge, esp' at night, see 2nd photo below)

The towpath is used regularly for dog walking and cycling, and anglers regularly fish from the banks of the river. TOAL can be from the stoned carpark (if you take off from your car roof) or from the towpath or any of the many anglers points (not sure what they are called, little jutting-out-into-the-river bits)

The Rowing Club holds an annual tournaments which usually draws a crowd.

There are 30+meter tall trees between the carpark and the river, so make sure you set your RTH height high enough if you take off from the carpark.

Free parking available in the leisure centre carpark, TOAL from either the footpaths or from the grass (if cut short enough) or directly under the marker on the map there is a small concreted step which is off the main pathway and is not used that much by walkers.

There is a 2-3 mile walk around the 2 lakes which is popular for dog-walkers, cyclists, etc. The lakes are man made, created in the 1970's as a point of rain-water drainage for the area (which was developed from some rather marshy land). They are know as "Balancing" lakes, as the 2 lakes are joined and then when the level rises enough in them, they drain into Lough Neagh.

The Leisure Centre has only recently been completed, and there is a water-sports center nearby too with activities using the lakes. Also on the shore is the Craigavon Civic Centre & council offices.

Hail Sand Fort (By john768)

Plenty of free parking at Humber mouth, acess through Fitties.Large expanse of beach stright infront of car park to take off and land. At low tide you can walk across the sand quite a way to fort. Unable to walk up to fort due to Tetney beck that runs acroos the sand

Haile Sand Fort was one of two sea forts built to defend ports along the Humber. Construction on the fort began in 1915 and it opened in early 1917. It comprised a hexagonal foundation with circular walls built on top with a diameter of 20.1 metres (66ft). The circular walls were constructed with concrete and faced with steel armour plating, which measured 0.5 inches all around. A further layer of steel plating lined the concrete shell internally. The fort was capped by its gun floor, which originally mounted two 4 inch quick-firing Mk.V weapons and a two-storey, central battery observation post. In 1940 the fort acquired two 12 pounder guns, which were replaced by two 6 pounder guns in 1941. The battery was in use throughout the war and retained for use afterwards. The army moved out in 1956 but the fort was armed up until the early 1960s. The fort was sold recently to an unknown purchaser for £117,000

Avebury Manor and Garden (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the bridge over the River Kennet to the West of the manor gardens about 80m away, outside of the NT boundary.

King Henry I gifted lands that included the site of the present Avebury Manor to William de Tancarville, Chamberlain of Normandy and England and a close adviser to the king.

In 1114, William de Tancarville, bequeathed this land to the Benedictine Abbey of St. Georges de Boscherville near Rouen which created an English cell at Avebury and a Priory was established shortly thereafter. This was known as an ‘alien priory’ as it was controlled by the French abbot from the Abbey near Rouen.

The monks were granted freedom from the shire by Henry I and this continued under Henry II and Richard I; they were also granted permission to create a chapel in the Manor House at Avebury.

Interestingly the Benedictines never controlled the advowson (ie. the right to put forward a person as parish priest) of the Parish Church of St James which belonged to Cirencester Abbey and this created ongoing tension between the two Abbeys.

Avebury was eventually sold in 1411 to Fotheringhay College which held the lands until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the mid-16th century under Henry VIII.

It’s thought that the current Avebury Manor is built either on or very close to the original priory structure.

Lanhill Long Barrow (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the field, as there is a public footpath going through. Be carefull with the power lines running through the field, close to the barrow.

The monument includes a long barrow set on level ground close to a tributary of the River Avon. It is rectangular in plan and orientated east-west. The barrow mound is 55m long, 25m wide and 1.5m high. A drystone entrance on the south side of the mound leads into a small chamber c.2m square while two further chambers are recorded on the north side of the mound. Although no longer visible at ground level flanking ditches, from which material was quarried during construction of the monument, run parallel to the north and south sides of the mound. These have become infilled over the years but survive as buried features c.3m wide. The site has been partially excavated, finds including the scattered bones of two adults in a chamber on the north side of the mound, nine skeletons in a chamber on the NW side and eleven skeletons in a further chamber.

Dyrham Park (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from outside the park on Sands Hill, with a clear view down to the manor house.

Ancient parkland, 17th-century house and garden
Dyrham Park was created in the 17th century by William Blathwayt. It is an early example of how a fortune made from empire was invested in a landed estate, transforming Dyrham into one of the most notable stately homes of its age.

The 270-acre (110 hectare) ancient steep and sloping parkland is full of magnificent trees and breathtaking views and space for young explorers to run free, be in nature and tick off challenges on their 50 things list.

Splendid borders, idyllic ponds and a wildflower orchard are all features of the stunning garden which is being sensitively developed as a 21st-century garden with echoes of the past.

Visitors can get a flavour of the life of William Blathwayt in the late 1600s by stepping into the impressive baroque mansion house with its collection of fine art and Dutch Delftware. His years as a diplomat in Europe, and his several colonial and administrative positions in government, helped to hone – and indulge – his increasingly refined taste.

East Kennet Long Barrow (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the public bridle way on the North side of the field above the long barrow. Note that the fields around the long barrow belong to a local farmer (which I met with).

Unlike, it's twin, West Kennet Long Barrow, there is very little known about this one. The local farmer informed me that East Kennet Long Barrow had collapsed long ago, and has not been excavated though there were some 19th century explorations. It is larger than West kennet, 106 metres x 50 metres, and there seems to be megaliths in the SE under the mound.

Osmington White Horse (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from a lay-by off Preston Road, A353, due South.

This horse is unique in carrying a rider, namely George III, the horse is elegant and large 280' long and 323' high. It is cut into Osmington hill opposite Weymouth Bay facing due south at a height of approx. 300ft. The horse is predominantly limestone, and is reasonably well cared for. The steep slope allows some of the limestone to be washed off and trails run down the hill. The horse is best seen from the A353, a farm track opposite the Carvan park offers a parking spot in a good position. To visit the figure take the road up through Preston, and Sutton Poytz, turn right at the crossroads, and after a short distance the road bears left and a track goes straight on, take this track and park. Walk from here along the track, keeping right (straight on) at the major junction and past the trig point, and the tumuli. After passing a steel gate on the track the horse is on the right. There are many footpaths and routes from Poxwell, Osmington and Preston are all straightforward.

Kingston Lacy (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from a lay-by off Blandford Road.

Discover Kingston Lacy, an opulent family home built to resemble a Venetian Palace.

There’s plenty to see, from spectacular artworks to beautiful landscapes. Enjoy a summer picnic on the south lawn, or let little visitors run wild in nearby play areas. Wander through the Japanese Garden to the Kitchen Garden, where Queen Victoria once sent her own gardeners for inspiration. Or explore the vast 8,500 acres of estate, featuring Iron Age hill forts, colourful heathland, water meadows and the world’s oldest pedigree herd of Red Ruby Devon cattle.

Kingston Lacy has a dynamic history. Over centuries the Bankes family built, altered, embellished and rebuilt their house. Their wealth came from extensive estates and profitable marriages, including inherited wealth from Caribbean plantations supported by the Atlantic slave trade.

William John Bankes created the house we know today. Forced into exile for homosexuality, he lived in Venice and remotely remodelled the house, as well as creating lavishly decorated interiors such as the spectacular Spanish Room. Displaying remarkable paintings by renowned artists like Rubens, Van Dyck, Titian and Brueghel, the house is a miniature ‘national gallery’ for the South West, and includes Bankes' collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts, the largest private collection in the UK.

The rings sit 100 metres above sea level and offer sweeping views across Dorset. They also hold the secrets of past civilisations.

There is evidence of Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman occupation at Badbury. However, the site is known mostly for its Iron Age hill fort with its three rings. It is thought the inner most ring dates from around 500 -600 BC.

A number of tribes settled at Badbury Rings. Among them were the Durotriges – a Celtic tribe who lived in parts of the South West of England prior to the Roman occupation of 43 AD.

Overlooking the River Stour, Hod Hill developed into a large Iron Age community consisting of over two hundred round houses. However, when the Romans arrived in the mid-first century AD, the resident Durotriges resisted the conquest and the hill fort was seized. The settlement was disbanded and it was used for a few years as a Roman military base.

Uley Bury is a sub-rectangular Iron Age bivallate hill-fort. There are three entrances to the fort, the main one in the north. The earthwork is mutilated in places by later quarrying. Finds from the camp include a Dobunic gold stater, a quern of Roman date and a bronze mask. Trial excavations at the east entrance in 1976 also found an Iron Age metalled road, pottery, a bronze ringheaded pin, penannular brooch and currency bars, as well as a crouched burial. Internally aerial photographs show cropmarks which represent an extensive settlement, with rectilinear enclosures and round houses (seen as ring ditches). An extensive collection of flint artefacts, also found at the hillfort, points to an extensive pre-Iron Age settlement at Uley Bury.

The Old Prison, formerly a 'House of Correction', is a fascinating 18th Century building in the Cotswold market town of Northleach and a historic visitor attraction.

Built in the 1790s, this was once a fine example of a model prison used to inspire better care and rehabilitation of prisoners throughout Britain and further afield. It even served as a blueprint for London's Pentonville Prison.

The keeper's house, police station and perimeter wall still survive, as do the female prison cells and court room, both of which can be viewed free of charge.

Today The Old Prison operates as a prestigious Kitchen & Cafe, operated by the renowned Hospitality and Catering company Relish, serving artisan coffees, brunch, lunch, seasonal dinners and homemade cakes.

Customers to The Old Prison Cafe are offered complimentary access to the original Prison Cells and Court Room, plus the Exercise Yard which is now a fully enclosed garden and houses the unique Lloyd Baker Rural Life Collection - the largest publicly owned regional collection of agricultural 'bygones' in the country.

Salmonsbury Camp (By clinkadink)

Parking was outside of Greystones Farm by the Cemetery. TOAL was just outside the Rissington FRZ. So if you are planning to fly here, be very careful. A third of the site crosses over into the FRZ.

On the outskirts of Bourton-on-the-Water, in the heart of the Cotswolds, lies an extraordinary historic site combining an Iron Age fort and town, a nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Within the Greystones Farm Nature Reserve, managed by the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, lies an archaeological site of national importance. Salmonsbury Camp is a prehistoric earthwork enclosure erected in the Neolithic period, over 6,000 years ago.

The site was occupied throughout the late Neolithic period, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Roman period and the Dark Ages, until it was finally abandoned in the 5th-century AD. The first evidence of human habitation is a large Neolithic causewayed enclosure, established as early as 4,000 BC.

The Neolithic enclosure was not a permanent settlement but a meeting place or ceremonial centre, perhaps a place to worship, trade, or feast.

The causewayed enclosure is made up of roughly concentric ditches and banks around a central area. The ditches are not continuous but are fragmented into short lengths. Similar enclosures in other places have revealed bones and pieces of pottery in the ditches, but no such remains have been found at Salmonsbury.

Roughly 3,000 years after the causewayed camp was built, around 100 BC, a hillfort was constructed, probably by the Dobunni tribe, who controlled this region. Given its low-lying location it seems clear the hillfort was not built for defence, but as a focal point for administration, trade, and community. The hillfort was defended by double ramparts made of gravel, braced by drystone walls.

The Iron Age settlement was only in existence for 150 years when the Romans arrived in Britain. Under the Romans, the focus of settlement shifted west. The hillfort was not abandoned completely, however, until sometime around 420 AD. After the Romans departed, the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Bourton grew up outside the fort's ramparts.

Parking in a lay-by adjacent to the reservoir off A470, TOAL from a Picnic Area at 51.799193, -3.439160, just south of the lay-by.

You’ll step into a silent conifer forest with its abundance of moss which lends a fresh verdant feel to the walk after negotiating the car park junction and passing through a picnic site. The forest was planted soon after the Reservoir was built in 1926 in order to stop the soil being washed from the hillsides into the water. Two devastating cholera outbreaks and the harrowing testimony of Cardiff residents had prompted three reservoirs to be built in Cwm Taf Fawr valley in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. You’ll catch glimpses of this the last and largest of the three between the tree trunks. Splendid views open up as you near and walk over the dam. The good news is that otters, great crested grebes, goldeneye, goosander and coot now also benefit from the reservoir’s clean water. Stop awhile to get more of the story from the poetry stone and panels along the way.

Windmill Hill, Chalton, Hampshire (By macspite)

Just off the busy A3, Butser Ancient Farm and Chalton are signposted. The mill is the highest point around and can be approached by one of four public footpaths as shown on the Hampshire Definitive Rights of Way map. https://www.hants.gov.uk/rh/row/maps/1809.pdf

I parked in a field entrance (the field was currently stubble) at the entrance to the road leading to Butser Ancient Farm. When it is busy you could park in the Farm car park and visit the farm itself. It was an uphill walk along path 8 which I used for a TOAL point.

The windmill was well above me so I ensured that the max height was set to over 120 metres - normally I fly coastal sites so no need to worry about contours. The site can be approached from the south, nowhere has any useful parking though, you will have to tuck your vehicle on the verge.

As the mill is a provate residence it is probably best not to approach too closely.

Adam and Eve Stones (By clinkadink)

Parking and TOAL was from Nash Road, 51.422019, -1.873002.

Adam and Eve Stones also known as Beckhampton Longstones are two large standing stones which are the only visible remains of Longstones Cove and Beckhampton Avenue.

Adam is the larger of the two stones and along with three others formed a four-sided cove known as Longstones Cove which was also part of the Beckhampton Avenue. Unfortunately, the other stones were destroyed in the post-medieval period by a landowner. Adam stone fell over in 1911 and was re-erected in 1912.

Adam and Eve Stones are all that is known to survive of the Beckhampton Avenue which was a major ceremonial avenue of standing stones. It's believed that this avenue was connected to Avebury Henge, but there is no evidence to support this theory.

Avebury Henge (By clinkadink)

Parking and TOAL was in a lay-by North of Avebury, outside of the NT boundary.

Avebury henge and stone circles are one of the greatest marvels of prehistoric Britain. Built and much altered during the Neolithic period, roughly between 2850 BC and 2200 BC, the henge survives as a huge circular bank and ditch, encircling an area that includes part of Avebury village. Within the henge is the largest stone circle in Britain - originally of about 100 stones - which in turn encloses two smaller stone circles.

Avebury is part of an extraordinary set of Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial sites that seemingly formed a vast sacred landscape. They include West Kennet Avenue, West Kennet Long Barrow, The Sanctuary, Windmill Hill, and the mysterious Silbury Hill. Many can be reached on foot from the village. The Alexander Keiller Museum also displays many notable finds from the Avebury monuments.

Long Stones Long Barrow (By clinkadink)

TOAL and parking was in a lay-by on the side of the A4.

The monument includes a Neolithic long barrow aligned north east to south west and situated on a gentle east-facing slope, 300m south west of the South Street long barrow. The barrow mound has been slightly disturbed by cultivation in the past but survives as an impressive earthwork which measures 84m long and 35m wide. The mound stands up to 6m high and is flanked to the north and south by quarry ditches which provided material for the construction of the mound. These have become partially infilled over the years owing to cultivation but survive as slight earthworks c.24m wide and 84m long with a depth of c.0.6m. The barrow was partially excavated by Merewether between 1820 and 1850. He discovered evidence of a Bronze Age cremation burial contained in a 'Deverel- Rimbury' style pottery urn and a piece of bronze which was probably part of a dagger. The urn is now located in the Devizes Museum.

Segsbury Camp (By clinkadink)

Parked and TOAL where the pin is.

Segsbury Camp or Segsbury Castle, also known as Letcombe Castle, is an Iron Age hill fort on the crest of the Berkshire Downs, near the Ridgeway above Wantage, in the Vale of White Horse district of Oxfordshire, England.

This iron-age hill fort is thought to have been a reasonably large settlement and communal centre for various activities including sheep management and exchange. Today, it is still possible to see the extensive ditch, ramparts and four gateways.

The fort is a short walk from the Ridgeway National Trail, and can be visited as part of the Devil’s Punchbowl and Segsbury Camp Circular walk.

Archeological investigations of Segsbury during the 1990’s revealed a plethora of evidence for human activity in the fort interior and just outside it to the south-west; pits, gullies, post holes, possibly hearths, and finds of iron all suggested that there was a substantial settlement here. The construction of the fort has yet to be dated, although the evidence implies that it began around 6-700 BC with a rampart fronted by a wooden palisade and backed by chalk, which was typical of the era, with two modifications added over the following centuries, the last around 200 BC.

The fort may not have been continuously occupied during this period, but there is evidence to suggest that there was life here at around the time of the Roman Conquest of 43 AD; pottery of the era has been found on the site, and it is possible that the road driven through what is now the southern entrance is Roman in origin.

The fort has extensive ditch and ramparts and four gateways. Excavation at the site by Dr Phené in 1871 discovered a cist grave on the south side of the hill fort rampart. The grave was floored with stone slabs and the sides were walled with flint. Finds included a shield boss and fragments of an urn or drinking cup. Among other finds were human bones and flint scrapers.

It has been suggested that this was a secondary Anglo-Saxon burial, placed at the camp. Further excavation was carried out in 1996 and 1997. The report on this work describes the periodic occupation of the hill fort between the 6th and 2nd centuries BC and suggests that it was a communal centre for various activities, including sheep management and exchange.

Southrey Church (By john768)

The little church of St John the Divine at Southrey in Lincolnshire is far from being a typical English country church, more like something that has been transported from New England.

Built by the parishioners and a local carpenter Richard Turner in 1898 at a cost of about £130 as a temporary structure, and is not subject to Faculty. The neat little gabled and belfry timber building was covered in PVC to protect the original wood. The church rests on a concrete plinth incorporating stones from the nearby ruins of Bardney Abbey. Maintenance has recently included redecorating in white and sky blue along with recarpeting.

The church now boasts a wonderful new five paned stained glass window to commemorate World War I and the sacrifice made by all the servicemen from the village during the last 100 years. A book has been compiled to show the lives of this men and their families and is available for purchase at the church. Memorials in the churchyard from that time have also been cleaned and restored.

The most recent addition to the church is a fully disabled access composting toilet and new storage facility, money raised for this amounted to £28,000. The church holds a service every week and the doors are open 365 days a year. Regular meetings of Knit and Natter for the residents takes place weekly long with children's workshops during the school holidays. Speakers evenings give another dimension to the village with talks from Bees to World War I Aviation and crafts from Chirstmas cake decoration to glass painting. All visitors are welcome to take pictures and sign the visitor’s book, which helps to enhance future projects for the upkeep of this site. The site is accessible to all. In 2016 the church was awarded the Lincolnshire Heritage Forum Best Volunteer Project for its stain glass window.

Wrawby Windmill (By john768)

Wrawby Postmill is a windmill at Wrawby near Brigg, in North Lincolnshire, England.
The mill is the last post mill in the north of England, and was built between 1760 and 1790 to serve the Elsham Hall estate. Originally it had four common sails, but through most of its working life had a more usual combination of two common and two spring sails, providing power with flexibility. It was working until the 1940s, when it had four spring sails, before becoming derelict. Following a possibility of demolition it was acquired and restored in 1965 by Wrawby Windmill Preservation Society. Maintenance work in 2008, which returned the mill to mixed sail types, was funded by the SPAB Mill Repairs Fund and local residents.

TOAL was from the end of the track running South of the A4, by the cattle grid, just before the start of NT land.

Built into the hill about 100 BC, the hillfort (sometimes known as Oldbury Camp) was a defensive settlement. Covering an area of 123 acres, its defences included over 2 miles of ramparts (banks or walls) and palisades (high wooden fences with no space between posts).

The Sanctuary, Avebury (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the roof of my car, in the lay-by of the A4 directly North of the site. The area to the East of The Sanctuary is NT land, as it contains long barrows.

Begun in about 2500 BC, the Sanctuary was originally a complex circular arrangement of timber posts and standing stones. These components are now indicated by concrete blocks and posts.

When archaeologists excavated the site in 1930 they found many objects such as flint tools, animal bones and pottery fragments, suggesting that Neolithic people were placing offerings in and around the standing posts. Later, in the early Bronze Age, the site was chosen for the burial of a teenage boy with a small Beaker pot.

Windmill Hill, Avebury (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the end of track road, just outside the NT boundary. There is a wooden gate an information sign about Windmill Hill, which is the start of the NT site. I have added the pin at this location.

Windmill Hill is a classic example of a Neolithic 'causewayed enclosure', with three concentric but intermittent ditches. Original construction began in 3800 BC. Large quantities of animal bones found here indicate feasting, animal trading or rituals, or perhaps all three. It is part of the Avebury World Heritage Site.

Swindon Windmill (By clinkadink)

TOAL from the road outside Windmill Hill Business Park.

Swindon Windmill is located within Windmill Hill Business Park. It looks as if it has been there for a century or more and that the neighbouring buildings grew up around it. In fact, the windmill has stood on the site only since the 1980s, though its history stretches back rather further. The windmill was moved, brick by brick, from its original site in Chiseldon, where it had stood since the 1820s.

Bexwell, old RAF Downham Market (By msgyorkie)

On Karoo close there is a dead end to park in. This is the site of RAF Downham Market, Norfolk. This was a WW2 airfield that house Lancaster bombers. It was also one of a few that had FIDO installed. This burned petrol in long troughs to burn away fog to enable planes to land. Over the road is the beautiful Bexwell St Mary the Virgin church.

Just like Happas Road you are flying in an area where birds of prey have been seen.

TOAL was on the South East side of the Castle grounds, by Nedern Brook. I parked in the free car park situated at the entrance to the site, close to St Mary's Church.

An early Norman motte and bailey castle dating for the start of the 12th century. The almost intact stone walls and the circular keep on a low motte were added in the early 13th century and the gatehouse in the 14th century. It was restored as a Victorian family home in 1885, when the keep and gatehouse were restored. It is set within a wooded country park, managed by Monmouth County Council since 1963.

Tintern Abbey (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from the bank of the Wye River, behind the Abbey's carpark.

Tintern Abbey is a national icon - still standing in roofless splendour on the banks of the River Wye nearly 500 years since its tragic fall from grace.

It was founded in 1131 by Cistercian monks, who were happy to make do with timber buildings at first. Abbot Henry, a reformed robber, was better known for his habit of crying at the altar than for his architectural ambitions.

A simple stone church and cloisters came later. But then, thanks to the patronage of wealthy Marcher lords, the white-robed monks began to think bigger.

In 1269 they began to build a new abbey church and didn’t stop until they’d created one of the masterpieces of British Gothic architecture. The great west front with its seven-lancet window and the soaring arches of the nave still take the breath away.

So grateful were the monks to their powerful patron Roger Bigod that they were still handing out alms on his behalf in 1535. But by then King Henry VIII’s English Reformation was well underway.

Only a year later Tintern surrendered in the first round of the dissolution of the monasteries - and the great abbey began slowly to turn into a majestic ruin.

Beacon Hill Hillfort is 300m by 200m, and dates back to the late Bronze Age period. No formal excavation has taken place, but there have been finds, including spear tips, axeheads, bronze bracelets and Roman coins.

It is also the resting place of the 5th Earl of Carnavon, famous due his discovering the Tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, Cairo, Egypt in 1922.

Highclere Castle (By clinkadink)

TOAL was from Beacon Hill, outside the Highclere Estate.

The first written records of the estate date back to 749 when an Anglo-Saxon King granted the estate to the Bishops of Winchester. Bishop William of Wykeham built a beautiful medieval palace and gardens on the park.

Later on, the palace was rebuilt as Highclere Place House in 1679 when it was purchased by Sir Robert Sawyer, Attorney General to Charles II and James II and direct grandfather of the current Earl.

In 1771, ‘Capability’ Brown made plans for the alteration of the grounds, water and symmetrical Georgian house at Highclere for the 1st Earl of Carnarvon.

In 1842, Sir Charles Barry – who was also working on the Houses of Parliament at the time – finished his final designs for the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon, transforming Highclere Place House into Highclere Castle.

The Countess’ research has revealed that, in 1867, the Constitution of Canada was drawn up in the British North America Act by 4th Earl of Carnarvon and John A. Macdonald, later the first Prime Minister of Canada.

The history of planes begins at Highclere Castle in 1910, with Sir Geoffrey De Havilland making his first flight on the Highclere Estate at Seven Barrows.

In 1922, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon discovered Tutankhamen’s Tomb with trusted colleague and friend Howard Carter.

During the First World War, Highclere Castle was converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers run by the 5th Countess of Carnarvon.

Parked on on Restrop Road, walked down Mud Lane (very approriate name), through the gate and followed the path to the Ringsbury Camp, about 10 minutes walk. TOAL was from the edge of the camp. No permission is required, it is a public footpath, but wear wellies, as it is very muddy.

Ringsbury Camp is an Iron Age hill fort, thought to date from approximately the year 50BC, in the civil parish of Purton in Wiltshire, England. The site is a scheduled monument.

There is a public footpath that continues off Roman Walk where you can TOAL which is not on the National Trust/English Heritage site. You can also use the nearby church but check you won't be disturbing anyone.

As this is owned by National Trust and in stewardship of English Heritage it's a bit of a double whammy! I'd advise only flying when the museum is closed to avoid any NT/EH staff. When I flew there was a local busy body about who seemed to enjoy stopping and talking to everyone for what seemed an eternity. People do pop up from time to time to walk around. I used a Mini 2 and no one visiting the site seemed to even notice it. I think they assumed the props noise a nearby grass strimmer or something!

Each time I’ve flown here I don’t venture into the actual base, a third of the site is where most of the rusty vehicles are situated.
My last visit I tried asking for permission from the landowner, politely I was declined. Hence why I flew from the boundary of the airfield.
The site is remote but online it’s reported to be alarmed and cameras. I’ve never found any.

Uffington Castle & White Horse (By clinkadink)

I parked on the lane above Dragon Hill Road, outside of the NT boundary.

Uffington ‘Castle’, which occupies the summit of Whitehorse Hill, is a rare and outstanding example of a large Iron Age hillfort. The famous White Horse is the oldest chalk-cut hill figure in Britain, perhaps over 3,000 years old. Nearby Dragon Hill, a natural mound about 10 metres high, is named for its association with the legend of St George.

The Uffington White Horse is a prehistoric hill figure, 110 m (360 ft) long, formed from deep trenches filled with crushed white chalk. The figure is situated on the upper slopes of White Horse Hill in the English civil parish of Uffington (in the ceremonial county of Oxfordshire and historic county of Berkshire), some 16 km (10 mi) east of Swindon, 8 km (5 mi) south of the town of Faringdon and a similar distance west of the town of Wantage; or 2.5 km (1.6 mi) south of Uffington.

Wayland's Smithy is an atmospheric historic site about a mile's walk along the Ridgeway from the Uffington White Horse. A Neolithic chambered long barrow, it was once believed to have been the home of Wayland, the Saxon god of metal working.

Human remains found on the site indicate that 14 people were interred in an earlier burial structure between 3590 and 3550 BC. Between 3460 and 3400 BC a second far larger barrow was constructed on top. It is the ruins of this that can be explored by visitors to the site today.

Deansgate Square, Manchester (By kvetner)

This is a fascinating urban location with great photograph opportunities for those who don't mind the challenges of take-off-and-landing in a street environment.

The photo shows Elizabeth Tower (during construction), but the adjacent Deansgate Square is also hugely photogenic, especially at night.

On-street parking is free-of-charge after 8pm.

The main challenge at this site is maintaining a safe take-off-and-landing (TOAL) location. Flying at a quiet time of day is obviously helpful, but other safety measures may be needed e.g. a spotter (in case of drunks etc); use of a car roof for TOAL etc.

I would not recommend flying here if you are not very familiar with the drone safety regulations at the time of flying and have no previous experience in this sort of location.

Dunham Massey (By kvetner)

I parked near the Swan with Two Nicks and followed a footpath west, just north of the River Bollin. The ground can be boggy here after bad weather or flooding.

Fair warning: Dunham Massey itself is National Trust property open to the public, and they have bye-laws forbidding you from flying "conveyances" or causing a nuisance while you are on their land. I've positioned the marker in an area that they do definitely own, but outside the Dunham Massey property itself. I've flown here without any problem more than once, and took the view that I wasn't flying a conveyance and wasn't causing a nuisance. But NT may take a different view, and anyone flies here at their own risk.

Magic Roundabout, Swindon (By clinkadink)

I parked in Swindon Football Stadium's car park, about 50m north of the roundabout.

In 2005, it was voted the worst roundabout in a survey of the general public by a UK insurance company. In September 2007, the Magic Roundabout was named as one of the world's worst junctions by a UK motoring magazine. In December 2007, BBC News reported a survey identifying The Magic Roundabout as one of the "10 Scariest Junctions in the United Kingdom"; however, the roundabout provides a better throughput of traffic than other designs and has an excellent safety record, since traffic moves too slowly to do serious damage in the event of a collision.

Hackpen White Horse is a chalk hill figure of a white horse on Hackpen Hill, located below The Ridgeway on the edge of the Marlborough Downs, two miles south east of Broad Hinton, Wiltshire, England. It is one of nine white horse hill figures located in Wiltshire. It is also known as the Broad Hinton White Horse due to its near location to Broad Hinton. Supposedly cut by local parish clerk Henry Eatwell in 1838 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria, the horse is 90 square feet (8.4 m2). The horse is regularly scoured and maintained.

The raised ridges offered better drainage in a wet climate: moisture drained into the furrows, and since the ridges were laid down a slope, in a sloping field water would collect in a ditch at the bottom. Only on some well-drained soils were the fields left flat.

Burrow Mump (By DroneGeek)

Burrow Mump is a hill and historic site overlooking Southlake Moor in the village of Burrowbridge within the English county of Somerset. It is a scheduled monument, with the ruined church on top of the hill a Grade II listed building.

The hill stands at a strategic location overlooking the point where the River Tone and the old course of the River Cary join the River Parrett. Although there is some evidence of Roman visitation, the first fortification of the site was the construction of a Norman motte. It has been called King Alfred's Fort, however there is no proof of use by Alfred the Great. A medieval church was built on the hill in the 15th century. The current ruined church on top of the hill was built in 1793.

TOAL is available from a footpath to the southwest of the site as the hill is owned by NT. A car park is to the NW of the site, although one space is available next to an old phone box on the main road close to the bridge.

Liddington Castle & WW2 Bunker (By clinkadink)

Parking in a decent sized lay-by on B4192 at 51.52226411323071, -1.6865735647029836

Liddington Clump and Liddington Castle is located on the Ridgeway near Swindon.

The Ridgeway in England stretches 85 miles (137km) from Overton Hill near Avebury, Wiltshire, to Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring, Buckinghamshire. It has been used for 5000 years by many different groups of people; travellers, farmers, and armies. During Saxon and Viking times, the Ridgeway was useful to provide a track along which to move soldiers into Wessex. In the medieval period, the route would have been utilised by drovers, moving animals to market.

Liddington Clump is the location of a 'Starfish' Decoy Control Bunker. This is the control bunker for a WWII 'Starfish' bombing decoy site. 'SF' - standing for 'Special Fire'. This would have been used to control fires which would have acted as a decoy to enemy planes targeting the town of Swindon to the north. The bunker consisted of two rooms off a central passage. That on the right housed generators. The control room was on the left, with a hatch in the concrete roof.

Liddington Castle is a late Bronze Age and early Iron Age hill fort in the English county of Wiltshire. At 277 metres (909 ft), it is the highest point in the Borough of Swindon and covers an area of 3 ha. Liddington Castle was one of the earliest hill forts in Britain, with first occupation dating to the 7th century BC. It is suggested as a possible site of Mount Badon and the location of the late 5th century Battle of Mount Badon. An historic battle where the Celtic Britons, led by King Arthur, defeated the Anglo-Saxons.

Hoar Cross Estate and Hall (By Steviegeek)

The original Hoar Cross Estate comprised 490 acres and was bought for 18 pence in 1450 during Henry VI’s reign, including a moat and a drawbridge, common in Tudor estate houses. It is reported that onlookers would simply turn up, just to set eyes on the building. It survived for nearly 300 years before being demolished in 1740.
From the early 17th century, Hoar Cross had been the first seat of the Ingram family whose principal residence was Temple Newsam, Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire. In 1661 Henry Ingram was brought up as Baron Ingram and Viscount of Irvine. On the death of the 9th Viscount in 1778 the Viscountcy became extinct. The estates descended to his daughters and in 1841 to Hugo Charles Meynell (grandson of Hugo Meynell and son of Sir Hugo Meynell who had married Elizabeth Ingram in 1782). Upon inheritance, Meynell incorporated "Ingram" into his surname to become Meynell Ingram.

Today Hoar Cross Hall is a 19th-century country mansion near the villages of Hoar Cross and Hamstall Ridware. The Grade II listed building is operated as a hotel and spa, and has facilities for conferences and weddings.

Maryhill Locks, Glasgow (By Drumsagard)

Maryhill Locks, built 1787-1790 for the Forth & Clyde Canal. There are five locks in this flight, which is known as the Maryhill Locks. Numbered 21 to 25, they assist the canal in its descent into the Kelvin valley, and each lock is connected with its neighbour by an oval basin. The purpose of the basins was to permit boats to pass each other whilst going through the series of locks.

My TOAL spot was on Bantaskin St. outside Scottish Canals property. Although I've put land owner permissions not known, Scottish Canals do have a drone policy. Details at - https://www.scottishcanals.co.uk/news/use-drones-scotlands-canals/

Welland Viaduct (By Rutlandboy)

Park in Harringworth village and take the footpath opposite the church heading west towards the viaduct. After passing under the viaduct there is a large area of grassland to launch from with good views of the structure. The viaduct was completed in 1878 , uses 30 million bricks, and has 82 arches. It is over 1km in length and spans the welland valley between the village of Seaton in Rutland and Harringworth in Northamptonshire. It is the longest masonary viaduct in the UK. Sadly not many trains cross it these days but you may be lucky and spot a steam train special. The valley regularly floods in winter so be wary of heading there after prolonged heavy rain.

Wilton Windmill (By clinkadink)

About 15 minutes from Marlborough in the car. Parking is in a lay-by in the country lane, adjacent to the windmill location. There is a gate which needs to be closed after you walk through. The windmill is about 100m from the gate on the right. Owned by Wiltshire Council, the operation and maintenance of the windmill relies on the visitors money to keep it going. There is a donation box on the top gate by the windmill.

Set high above the village of Wilton, in the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty, about 9 miles south east of Marlborough in Wiltshire, Wilton Windmill is the only working windmill in Wessex and still produces wholemeal, stone-ground flour.
