Where to fly your drone

Bedworth water tower. (By DeanoG60)

I parked on Ambleside Road. There is a small green space (ive dropped the pin on the green space) with public access for take of and landing. This is in the middle of a housing estate so sub 250g is a must if you're following the drone code.

King Alfred's Tower is a folly in Somerset, England, on the edge of the border with Wiltshire, on the Stourhead estate. The tower stands on Kingsettle Hill and belongs to the National Trust. This is National Trust so TOAL is not permitted within the towers grounds but can be done from nearby.

Parking on site is free and exploring the wooded grounds is must.

Letocetum Roman Baths (By ensignvorik)

There is a small free car park just towards the end of Watling Street, if it's full use street parking, however park responsibly and do not obstruct junctions or driveways.

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!

Old Boneyard, at. Former RAF Folkingham (By Dren)

Visited this old airbase several times, access is from footpath at end of lane, near 5 bar gate at end of track. Farm vehicles regularly use the base for storage. To access the base you have walk through the woods to the disused military grader shovel blocking the path.
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.
The airfield is crammed full of old disused military and civil engineering machinery from the 1940s to present day

Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth (By clinkadink)

A short walk up the eastern path of the cove will lead to the headland to allow for safe and accessible TOAL.

Bowleaze Cove is a small sand and shingle beach, near the village of Preston, just to the northeast of Weymouth, Dorset, England. The cove is on the Jurassic Coast and is known for its geology. Just to the west is Furzy Cliff.

The beach is made up of mainly shingle and shell with some sandy areas. A small pier divides the beach near the River Jordan outflow. The remains of Jordan Hill Roman Temple are located on Jordan Hill, leading down to Bowleaze. The hill figure of the Osmington White Horse can be seen.

A coastal cliff walk leads eastwards from Bowleaze, passing the Broadrock cliffs, Redcliff Point, and thence to Osmington Mills.

Essex Bridge - Shugborough Hall (By ensignvorik)

We parked at the nearby Canalside Farm shop and cafe off Mill Lane. Walked across Mill lane and followed the canal, turning right after going under a bridge. The TOAL Pin is easily locatable after walking over Essex Bridge and is still outside of National Trust land at time of posting. You can get some great shots of the bridge and from a decent height you can get some pictures of Shugborough Hall in the distance. Flying over the NT property is difficult due to not being able to keep decent VLOS without a spotter.

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 (By clinkadink)

The site is managed by English Heritage, who have no drones policy like NT. TOAL was from a lane of B4507 near Ashbury.

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.

In the Middle Ages each strip was managed by one family, within large open fields held in common (see strip cultivation, and the locations of the strips were the same each year

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. In damper soil towards the base of the ridge, pulses [peas or beans or dredge (a mixture of Oat and Barley might be sown where wheat would have become waterlogged,

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.

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.

The Parliamentarian New Model Army, commanded by Sir Thomas Fairfax and Oliver Cromwell, destroyed the main Royalist army under Charles I and Prince Rupert. Defeat ended any real hope of Royalist victory, although Charles did not finally surrender until May 1646.

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.

Diana Dors Monument (By clinkadink)

No permission required to fly, Shaw Ridge Leisure Complex is a free carpark.

Location: Shaw Ridge Leisure Park, Swindon
Artist: John Clinch

Diana Dors (1931-1984) was an English film actress and singer, noticed as a blonde bombshell in the style of American Marilyn Monroe. In 1991, British sculptor John Clinch was commissioned to make a bronze figure of Swindon’s most famous daughter who died of cancer 7 years earlier.

The statue is an exaggerated depiction of Diana in her evening gown, honouring her womanhood and female power. The statue can be seen at the Shaw Ridge Complex in Swindon, where it beckons all corners of the park.

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.

The interior is lit from above through coloured glass by Francis Eginton and contains a poignant statue of Sophia by Joseph Nollekens, and three monuments to members of the Pelham family which predate the mausoleum.

Milk Hill, Wiltshire (By clinkadink)

Driving through Stanton St Bernard (near Devizes, Wiltshire), there is a small track leading to about 100m from the summit. The track is rough, but suitable for cars. You need to pay a toll via PayPal of £2.50, by scanning a QR code on the sign near the start.

Milk Hill is the highest point in Wiltshire and is part of the Pewsey Downs, a rolling set of chalk grassland hills between Devizes and Pewsey which are prominent in the landscape and almost invite the passer by to park up and take a stroll along the ridge. At just over 1,000 feet, they are high enough to offer fantastic views of the Pewsey Vale and beyond but low enough to make walking over them not too strenuous.

Broughton Castle (By ensignvorik)

Broughton Castle is a medieval fortified manor house in the village of Broughton which is about two miles south-west of Banbury, Oxfordshire, England on the B4035 roa. It is the home of the Fiennes family, Barons Saye and Sele. The castle sits on an artificial island in pastureland and is surrounded by a wide moat. Across the small bridge lies the parish church of St Mary the Virgin, surrounded by its historic cemetery. A Grade I listed building, it opens to the public over the summer.

Plenty of road parking nearby in the village including on site via the Church (meant to be for church visitors only) or you can park on site as a paying visitor if it's open.

Plenty of surrounding park land to fly, but as the castle is privately owned you probably don't want to be annoying them. Keep a distance, get high and get whatever footage you may want without outstaying your welcome.

TOAL is from a public bridleyway that is not visible on the Drone Scene map for some reason, just keep following the gravel road North West of Polesworth Road bend.

They don't allow drone flights so there is a corner near the most south section of the track where it is visible from the path. You can TOAL here.

Welcombe Hills (By ensignvorik)

The Welcombe Hills offer delightful walks through grassland and woodland. Woolly thistle, quaking-grass and the diminutive adder’s-tongue grow in the grasslands where ant hills created by yellow meadow ants are a distinctive feature. The woodland contains oak, horse-chestnut and beech with English elm. Birds are plentiful, with great spotted woodpecker, sparrowhawk, little owl, treecreeper and finches enjoying the woodland where ravens breed in spring. Brimstone butterflies are numerous in the spring sunshine.

The prize for droners is finding the Phillips Obelisk.

Parking available in Maidenhead Road and off Ingon Lane, Clopton. Alternatively there is a car park on the A439. Take care when crossing this busy road. As you leave the car park, cross the road and turn right.

Wight Karting (By DEFarnes)

TOAL from the public byway to the South of the track, very clear and open, easy to avoid overflights and proximities. Also easy to see other aircraft, it can get busy in the skies as I think there are lots of sightseeing flights as well as private flights. But no worries at all, apart from the usual care and diligence about helicopters etc.

Parking, I am not sure if Tescos, or Busy Bees Garden Centre take number plate numbers and charge if you don't use them, but if they don't they are a 10 min walk away. A well served bus stop is just at the end of a public footpath. (The one along the Golf Course you would use to get to the BOAT.)

Coleshill Memorial Park (By ensignvorik)

Park in North Warwickshire borough, that is NOT maintained by Warwickshire County Council so no drone ban here at time posting.

On site car park.

There is a cricket pitch, football pitch, skate park and playground here. When there is no football happening the field is large enough for a novice to use to practise flying techniques.

It's a fairly residential area so be respectful. I had no complaints by parents or dog walkers on my visit as my drone was mainly facing the cricket action so was obvious I was not focusing on any of the childrens play areas.

12 Span Viaduct near Cornwood. Layby close to track on the main road to fly from owned by Devon Highways.

Now part of the Plymouth to Bristol rail line

The Blachford Viaduct was originally designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the South Devon Railway. It was opened in 1848 as part of the Totnes to Laira (Plymouth) line. This line consisted of the last extension of the Great Western Railway from Bristol to Plymouth. Originally built as a broad gauge railway, the line was converted for standard use in 1892 following a merger between South Devon Railway and Great Western Railway in 1876. Due to the conversion of the line from broad to standard gauge, the original Brunel viaduct was replaced in 1893 by a Viaduct designed by Sir James Inglis, the General Manager and Consulting Engineer of the Great Western Railway.

Atherstone Solar Farm (By ensignvorik)

TOAL either from the public right of way footpath to the east of the solar farm or from Warton Lane.

I'd recommend to have a spotter with you if you intend to fly from the public right of way, as it can be very easy to lose VLOS otherwise.

The fields are quite vast and as long as crops are not too high then this is a good location for novices to practise flying techniques.

Hartshill Castle Ruins (By ensignvorik)

Hartshill Castle is a ruined castle in the village of Hartshill on the outskirts of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. It is on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register.

The Castle Ruins are located on Hartshill Hayes Country Park, which comes under Warwickshire County Councils Country Parks. Warwickshire County Council have a blanket no drone policy in their country parks.

However, the castle ruins are easily visible from Castle Road and there is a view point installed looking over the ruins. The viewpoint has trees around it so I would recommend taking off from the footpath, getting a good height and then flying over closer if you need too.

Good location if you're into photography of ruin sites, but other than that there is not much else exciting here.

Totternhoe Knolls is part of the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The chalky soil of this forty acre nature reserve and picnic site supports a wide variety of characteristic and unusual chalk downland plants and wildlife. In addition, Totternhoe Knolls has a fascinating historical legacy and offers superb views towards Dunstable Downs and Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, also part of the same Chiltern Hills chalk formation.
Totternhoe Knolls is owned by Bedfordshire County Council and can be visited at any time of the year. It is an ideal place to combine a picnic with a short or longer stroll in the countryside.

Leighton Buzzard Railway (By Acedrone)


http://www.buzzrail.uk/
http://www.buzzrail.uk/times-fares/

Built in 1919 to carry sand from the pits to the north of Leighton Buzzard to the canal and standard gauge railway to the south, the Leighton Buzzard Light Railway was the epitome of an English narrow gauge industrial railway. Although it briefly used two steam locomotives when it opened, for almost all of its lifetime it used characteristic Motor Rail "Simplex" petrol and diesel locos. These were first developed for use in the trenches of the first world war and continue in production today. The line eventually had more than 40 of these rail tractors, with many more employed in the sand quarries themselves.

In 1969 the railway sucuumbed to road transport, but a few dedicated volunteers saved most of the line and restored it to working order. For the first time in its history, passengers were carried. Steam haulage was re-introduced after a 50 years absence. The line now runs from Pages Park to Stonehenge and offers a fascinating glimpse into Britain's industrial past. In addition to a collection of steam locomotives from the UK and around the globe, the Leighton Buzzard has perhaps the most comprehensive collection of ex-industrial internal combustion loocomotives in the world. It offers a ride that passes through industrial units, housing estates and open countryside and climbs what may be the steepest section of adhesion-worked public railway in the UK.

Mallory park racing circuit (By ensignvorik)

***WARNING***

If intending to capture an event day plan ahead and call the venue for permission to fly within the race circuits land. If you don’t have permisssion, the marker point is a TOAL location on A public right of way that’s off Mallory parks land. From this huge field you can keep excellent visual line of sight around the south east and south west portion of the track whilst still keeping a good distance from racing cars and crowds.

If there’s no event on it’s usually pretty quiet here. I’ve been in these fields a few times and never come across a soul on those days you can make a judgement call on if to fly above or follow the track. Remember to stay within VLOS!!

St Michael's Church (By ensignvorik)

Best to arrive once the nearby National Trust property has closed.

If you arrive when NT's Baddesley Clinton is open, you can use their car park for extra cheekiness.

Otherwise park next to the gates to the south of the track leading to the Church is space is available. Next best bet is the parking area further south on Haywood Lane to the entrance of Hay Wood, where you can take a stroll back to the church, then come back and ensure a lovely walk around the woods.

Of course worth mentioning the church is very close to National Trust Property and owned land, but the church itself is not located on NT land so is good to fly from and also to get some distant shots of Baddesley Clinton moated manor house for good measure if you wish to stick to the Trust.

The site of Alvecote Priory, a Benedictine priory of Medieval date. Ruins of the medieval building and the 18th-century house built on the same site are still standing. It was situated 200m northeast of Alvecote Grange (modern name).
You can park along the road and I would not recommend parking in the Samuel Barlow Bar parking as its private land and you might get a fine for doing so. I do recommend popping in for a bite or a drink though.

The Priory is normally quiet as I don’t think many people know it is here as its behind a tree line. You do however get the odd walker popping in for a look around and then they leave.

St Peter's Church (By Acedrone)

A family church
This thirteenth-century estate church in Deene Park is the church of the Brudenell family, who bought Deene Park in 1514 and have lived there ever since. It contains many monuments to Brudenells, including one to James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, who led the Charge of the Light Brigade. In 1868 the widow of James Brudenell commissioned T H Wyatt to rebuild much of the church.

There is a splendid tomb of the 7th Earl and his wife in the South Chapel. The church is a large building constructed using local stone and Collyweston slates, with a tall west tower and broach spire which probably date from the thirteenth century or earlier. Inside, the nave and aisles are austere but the chancel was sumptuously furnished and decorated by G F Bodley in 1890

Sentinel (Spitfire Island) (By ensignvorik)

Sentinel is a 16-metre-high (52 ft) sculpture by Tim Tolkien, installed upon Spitfire Island, a roundabout at the intersection of the Chester Road and the A47 Fort Parkway.

It is near Junction 5 of the M6 motorway and the present day Jaguar Cars plant (the former Castle Bromwich aircraft factory). It shows three Supermarine Spitfires peeling off up into the air in different directions. The half-scale Spitfires are made of aluminium, with curving steel supporting beams which act as vapour trails. It captures the dynamics of the Spitfire in flight and commemorates the nearby Castle Bromwich factory where most of Britain's wartime Spitfires were built.

Firstly this is a busy junction, try to stay clear of rush hour, and the obvious precautions regarding traffic, take off away from driver visibility where possible so as to not be distraction and cause an RTC. Trying to fly 50 meters away is difficult, so use a sub 249g drone only within this area to keep within the drone code.

Secondly, seagulls. On this visit there was a colony of gulls that seem to use the Jaguar Land Rover Plant as home, probably a hot spot of left over food from workers. So whenever I got over that side (which the monument faces) then the gulls got interested which made getting good video footage frankly impossible, photos were a case of go in, photo, go out, repeat. I eventually gave up after several runs as didn't want a drone potentially falling on traffic after a gull attack.

Thirdly, this is just outside the Birmingham Airport FRZ, so don't stray!

If arriving by car use either the B&Q Car park or the Sainsburys car park near by. Both allow 3 hours free parking for 'customers only' be aware of the opening and closing times of the stores as the car parks do get locked up.

The best TOAL is where I've placed the marker, as this is a path on a gradiant and allows you to be higher up than the road giving a good VLOS.

The next best place is the opposite side of the A452 by the pedestrian crossing. There is a telephone junction box here which makes a nice stable TOAL point, however you are closer to traffic and could be a distraction to drivers, so use cauction, be sensible and only use this point at quieter points of the day.

Spaghetti Junction (M6 J6) (By ensignvorik)

Gravelly Hill Interchange, also known as Spaghetti Junction, is junction 6 of the M6 motorway where it meets the A38(M) Aston Expressway in the Gravelly Hill area of Birmingham, England. The interchange was opened on 24 May 1972.

There are multiple take off and land places to capture this feat of human construction. As this is a busy junction of a major motorway, do not get within 50 metres and be at a height to not distract drivers before approaching.

Park on StoneChat Drive or there about. Next to StoneChat drive is a path that crosses under the M6 and takes over to an Industrial Site. Anywhere on this path is a good take off location depending on what side you want to capture keeping within VLOS.

Option 2 is to go on a walk and make your way around to Aston Reservoir.

Option 3 from where you parked either walk through the estate or drive back round to park approach. There is a Greek orthodox church. Lots of people were sat outside and I asked if I could take my drone up from the field to record the motorway, there were no objections, but who knows if you'll get the same response. From here you can keep excellent VLOS for recording things like time lapses.

COPP memorial / Hayling Island (By macspite)

The memorial is a lump of granite (like one of Obelixe's menhirs) on a mound. It commemorates the Combined Operations Pilotage Parties who were based on Hayling during WW2. The unit was formed to develop the use of canoes in warfare, the most famous example of which were the exploits of the "Cockleshell Heroes".

https://www.discoverhayling.co.uk/copp-heroes

The monument is in one of the seafront car parks with toilets and an ice cream kiosk nearby. The less good news is that the local council considers £6 to park as good for their budget. Also, in summer and with the sun out the beach area becomes very overcrowded. Best visited outside the hours 09:00 to 18:00

/there is a wee narrow gauge railway that "runs" along parallel to the shore - tripod mode is best for matching speed of drone and train. The front offers views over to the Isle of Wight, toward Bognor and along the Solent toward Southampton.

There are 2 pubs, a good chippy and a couple of restaurants within walking istance

This is within the infamous, imaginary and spurious "No Fly Zone" promoted by a website that we do not name. If anyone suggests you should not be flying respond brisjly and with forceful language.

The land is administered by Havant Borough Council. At time of writing (24/06/21) there are no by-laws in force to prevent flying.

Be aware that both Military and Coastguard helicopters often overfly this area at low altitude, model aircraft and other drones may be present and paramotor pilots may fly at 30 feet or less "practising landing"

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).

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.

Popular with Dog walkers and is a sports pitch (has 3+ pitches chalked out) so could be busy at weekends/during warmer days. Wasn't disturbed during my 30 mins or so that I was flying.

There is some over head power cables but its a big enough space that you can avoid them and not be close to them at all.
