Faversham Quay and Creek (By grandad1950)

Interesting place to visit with a few bars, shops and creek side walks. Houseboats, barges and sailing boats moored along the quay. Not a lot of parking but but town centre parking just 5 minutes away. It could get busy later in the day.

One word of warning, the seagulls were a real pain.

The Ailesbury Column Savernake Forest (By Kirky)

Ailesbury Column Savernake Forest Wiltshire,
Been trying to get this shot for ages after my third journey to this location I managed it, its a gorgeous place with stunning surroundings with lots & lots of history, parking can be a bit of a nightmare but is doable followed by a short walk for TOAL, some parts of the forest have signs saying private so be mindful of that, I adhered to the notices & stayed this side of the forest on a deep grass verge over looking the forest,
All in all just a lovely place & worth a visit & a stroll in the forest if that's your thing also this is where the big bellied oak tree is I shall attach links, was very quiet when I visited.

The Church of the Holy Cross, Middlezoy (By BudgieUK)

The Church of the Holy Cross in Middlezoy, Somerset, England dates from the 13th century and has been designated as a grade I listed building. William of Bitton II was the rector by 20 April 1263. From the 13th to early 16th century, when it became a separate parish, Middlezoy was a chapelry of Sowy parish. The church was originally dedicated to St. Lawrence and later to St. Mary before adopting the current dedication in 1754.

You can park on the local roads, and TOAL is available from many areas around the church

Crichton Memorial Church (By AspieTravels)

Join me for Part 1 as I explore by DJI Drone, the beauty of Crichton Memorial Church, Dumfries, Scotland designed by renowned architect Sydney Mitchell. Built between 1890-97, this non-denominational church is a must-visit for history and architecture enthusiasts. This stunning building is the focal point of the 85-acre Crichton Estate.

I stayed at the adjacent Holiday Inn hotel and asked permission of the manager there if i could TOAL from the adjacent car park and that was no issue.

George Stephenson's Brussleton Incline (By AspieTravels)

George Stephenson's Brussleton Incline on the historic Stockton and Darlington Railway, officially opened on September 27, 1825. It played a crucial role in the coal industry hauling coal waggons and their locomotives uphill using double stationary engines at Brussleton. It connected the former Shildon Colliery to the port town of Stockton-on-Tees via Darlington.

Parking: free

Note: do NOT park on the road adjacent as per the photo, as it goes further up to the former Engine Masters House and others. You can walk up and see the engine masters house.
There is also a Georgian Bridge but the overhead section above the road is no longer there.

Porthkerry Viaduct (Porthkerry Park, Barry) (By vrsdazitup)

Lovely park area with a very scenic Viaduct with dual rails going across. There is a large field on the side I took the photo from. There is no access to this field nearby. I took off on the car park near by the arches of the bridge. Please note this is within a FRZ of Cardiff Airport. Applied at https://nsf.nats.aero pretty easily and had confirmation the following day. Once on-site you call Cardiff ATC for permission to take off. They'll ask you to confirm how long you plan on flying for, you'll agree to terms over the phone and they give any required warnings. You call them once you are finished. This was my first time applying to fly in a FRZ and it was very simple.

Falls of Tarf, Glen Tilt, Blair Atholl (By TheFatController)

I thought long and hard before adding this as a location as it is well off the beaten track and it will take some effort to get to, but you will be well rewarded by the absolutely stunning scenery. It is possible to hike to the falls but it's easier on a bike - last year I used an ordinary mountain bike (7hrs) but this year on an eBike the round trip took around 3 and a half hours (including half an hour for snack/photos/droning at the falls. The closest parking is at the Bridge of Tilt car park in Blair Atholl, which is also the nearest point for shops/food/toilets. Midge repellent is also useful!

Calvine and Struan (By TheFatController)

You can take a walk up from the House of Bruar just off the A9, or there is a small lay-by in the hamlet of Calvine for a much shorter walk, though the lay-by is often occupied by the speed camera van. Follow the road down under the railway bridge and there is a marked footpath for 'Struan Old Kirk'. The path takes you down along past the River Garry waterfalls, across a field and over to the old church. You can either retrace your path to return, or continue on up the road by the church to make a loop. Nearest food/drink/toilets are at the House of Bruar.

Stockingfield Bridge (By 1AlanM)

Stockingfield bridge was built recently to enable cyclists and pedestrians to be able to move from the Glasgow branch to the main branch without leaving the canal and crossing busy roads.
The striking design of the bridge is a far cry from the initial proposal which was to have a male figure designed by Andy Scott (Kelpies) holding up the bridge. This design was later simplified to to the current design.

Long Man of Wilmington View (By ianinlondon)

The Long Man of Wilmington is an impressive artwork from the middle ages drawn on the side of the South Downs. This particular location is a driveway for a large farm gate, allowing you to park and take off in full view of the Long Man, making it easy to keep in visual line of site. Be aware that another car may pull up and park near you; this is on a quiet country lane but passing traffic will also occur. This spot is more than 150 m from residential buildings so it may be better for larger model drones. There is also a full car park around 200 metres away shown on TOAL.

Amazing views over the Minch to the Outer Hebrides - when clear - and stunning coastal scenery of Waternish and Dunvegan peninsulas.

Park in the Trumpan Church Car Park and use the fenced-off area with picnic benches for TOAL, check with anyone else present that they are ok with you flying - it is quite remote, but there were people there on both occasions we visited, none had any issue with the drone flying...

Watch out for the MIDGES! They are fierce and have big sharp pointy teeth, either invest in some SMIDGE (other midge repellants are available) or take a sacrificial tasty snack for them, in my case the husband worked well, they seem to like him and will happily go and chase him, leaving me free to fly...

River Coe Gorge, Glencoe (By AlbionDrones)

The River Coe Gorge is a narrow river gorge running from the waterfall down alongside the main road - A82. It is filled with obstacles, trees, branches, rocks, and waterfalls and rapids, yet it makes an amazing place to fly FPV in a cinematic way.

Park in the layby and walk to the viewing platform, keep to the right and you will have a good view of the gorge entrance, your spotter needs to be nearby too.

If the drone loses connection you may find yourself having to take a swim to recover it as overhanging rock faces and trees will make it difficult for it to autoreturn. I flew about 300m down the gorge, using my AVATA and Goggles2 with the MC, at 300m I had 2 bars of transmission, so turned back at that point.

Be prepared to lose your drone if you attempt this amazing location...

Dunsinnan Hill Fort (By mynameisjoe)

Dunsinane/Dunsinnan is the site of a battle in 1054 where the Earl of Northumbria defeated Macbeth of Scotland. The earlier Iron Age hill fort in the picture has long been known as Macbeth’s Castle and was made famous in the Shakesperean play. Most people pronounce it incorrectly as DunsinANE, it was changed by Shakespeare to make it rhyme in:
“I will not be afraid of death and bane, Till Birnam forest come to Dunsinane”

I have added a marker for a small parking spot. It's a really popular walking spot and is quite often full. The walk, although short, is pretty steep in places so be prepared for a wee workout. The views at the top though are worth the effort.

It’s correct pronunciation is Dunsinnan, which in Gaelic means Hill of Ants.

Mill Meece Pumping Station (By D0c.Col)

Nestled amidst the tranquil landscape of Staffordshire, the Mill Meece Pumping Station serves as a poignant testament to the area's industrial legacy. Erected during the renowned Victorian era between 1883 and 1884, this grand edifice was dedicated to supplying clean water to Stoke-on-Trent's bustling pottery industry. Its monumental presence not only facilitated manufacturing processes but also catered to the emergent population's water needs.
It commenced operations in November, 1914, with the Ashton Frost engine, the pumping station boasted two boreholes and boilers. The Hathorn Davey engine, introduced in 1928, further enhanced its efficiency by tapping into new boreholes.
Both engines dutifully served until December 22, 1979, when modern electric pumps superseded them. Presently, the station continues to deliver an average of 2.2 million gallons daily to Severn Trent Water consumers, employing potent electric pumps within its original boreholes from 1914.
The Pumping Station is an architectural marvel, featuring a resplendent red brick façade adorned with intricate gothic-style windows and elaborate ironwork. Its towering 38.4-meter (126-foot) chimney once facilitated natural draft for the boilers, harnessing the upward flow of hot flue gases.
Within the Engine House, colossal steam engines, initially coal-powered, drove formidable pumps, drawing water from underground wells to supply the region, with a stable water source for industrial and domestic purposes.
Evolution and adaptation marked the journey of the Station, transitioning from steam to electric power while retaining its iconic Victorian structure. Today, under the stewardship of the Mill Meece Preservation Trust, extensive restoration endeavours ensure the continuation of it’s rich heritage.
The successful renovation of the middle boiler in 2021, and the revival of the Ashton Frost and Hathorn Davey engines rekindled the station's historic significance.
Beyond its mechanical marvels, the station has transformed into a mesmerizing museum, offering visitors a captivating journey through time. Exhibiting a curated collection of vintage pumping machinery, it chronicles the technological evolution from steam-driven engines to contemporary electric pumps.
Beyond its engineering marvels, the Mill Meece Pumping Station holds great cultural significance and it continues to serve as a reminder of the region’s industrial heritage and it’s pivotal role in shaping the social and economic landscape of Staffordshire.

Parking is at the road side along the lane and adjacent to the train track.

Conisbrough Castle (By Trouty1)

I parked on Castle Hill directly adjacent to the castle. Provides a good vantage for VLOS. It is an English Heritage site.
Info-
Conisbrough Castle is a medieval fortification in Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, England. The castle was initially built in the 11th century by William de Warenne, the Earl of Surrey, after the Norman conquest of England in 1066. Hamelin Plantagenet, the illegitimate, parvenu brother of Henry II, acquired the property by marriage in the late 12th century. Hamelin and his son William rebuilt the castle in stone, including its prominent 28-metre (92 ft)-high keep. The castle remained in the family line into the 14th century, despite being seized several times by the Crown. The fortification was then given to Edmund of Langley, passing back into royal ownership in 1461.

Nelson Monument (By StunningDrone)

The Nelson Monument, 120 feet (37 m) tall on a granite base, stands on Portsdown Hill about 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Portsmouth Harbour on the south coast of England. It was the eventual outcome of a movement started during Horatio Nelson's lifetime to "perpetuate the glorious victories of the British Navy". By 1799 Nelson's prize agent Alexander Davison was able to use the Nelson name to spearhead a campaign to honour "Britain's naval glory and pre-eminence". It was, however, Nelson's death at Trafalgar, 21 October 1805, that galvanized the campaign.

On the road opposite the monument is parking and take off.

Sandon Hall (By D0c.Col)

Set in 400 acres of Parkland, the grade II listed Sandon Hall, is a 19th-century country mansion in Staffordshire, and is the seat of the Earl of Harrowby. Historically, before the Norman Conquest, Sandon was owned by Ælfgar, Earl of Mercia, before passing through a succession of notable owners, until it came into the possession of the Erdeswicke family, through Margaret, a descendant of Sir William Stafford. Margaret married Thomas Erdeswicke in the 12th year of the reign of Edward III in 1339.
Sandon was eventually inherited by Sampson Erdeswicke, a notable antiquary, and in 1593 he married Mary Neale, widow of Everard Digby, and mother of the recusant Everard Digby who was executed in 1606 for his part in the Gunpowder Plot. Their son, Richard Erdeswicke, sold Sandon manor in 1631 to his half-brother George Digby in order to help settle his debts, but unfortunately Richard was to meet his end whilst languishing in Fleet debtors prison in 1640. The tombs of the Erdeswickes can be found in the nearby Sandon parish church.
The manor was passed onto Jane Digby, who married Charles Gerard, 4th Baron Gerard. Their descendants included Elizabeth Gerard, who married James Hamilton, 4th Duke of Hamilton. A lawsuit concerning the estate was the pretext of a duel in 1712 where both participants died of their wounds. As a result the estate descended to Archibald Hamilton, 9th Duke, who replaced the old moated manor-house with a new house built by Joseph Pickford of Derby.
In 1776, Nathaniel Ryder, 1st Baron Harrowby, purchased the estate. After a fire in 1848, Dudley Ryder, 2nd Earl of Harrowby, rebuilt Sandon Hall in a neo-Jacobean style in 1852. Today the current owners, Conroy and Caroline Ryder, 8th Earl and Countess of Harrowby, have renovated parts of the magnificent house and estate that both can be used as a beautiful backdrop for public and private events.

The Hall is a private residence and pretty secluded in the estate but I had full access hours before a wedding that was taking place on the day of the flight. They do have open days so check out their website for details.

You can park at the nearby All Saints Church just off School Lane (opposite the Dog and Doublet Inn on the A51) and access by foot from the edge of their grounds but you still have to get close to maintain VLOS.

I remember this building well coming out of London on many a late night, now they have started building flats it has kinda ruined how it used to look but worth a visit & would be better using a sub 250g drone due to the busy A40 that runs past it.

A stunning Baronial Castle glimpsed from the roadside.

Park up in the car park for the Clach na Coileach, and you can see the castle at about 500m away, behind some trees. Best approach would be to fly a little down the glen, then turn and fly up to the castle, with it being visible rather than being hidden by trees, but as can be seen I was chancing the mizzly weather, so wanted to keep the flight time to an absolute minimum...

Spud Wood (By AlbionDrones)

Spud Woods in Lymm, park in the free car park, short walk over Grantham's Bridge - over the Bridegwater Canal - and then lots of options as to where to fly.

For a drone meet up turn right and follow the path to the meadow with the picnic bench and 2 other benches and its a nice open field to fly over alongside the woodland and canal - for the adventurous there are the woodland paths to fly through...

Walk straight ahead to the central clering, about 60m wide and about 1/4 mile long, bending left, sheltered between the trees..

Turn left and another much smaller meadow alongside the canal.

Easliy accessible with a shorter walk than Beacon Fell on what appears to be good solid ground.

A good few families walking, and dot walkers, but no-one had issue with the drones being flown, there are no 'no drone' signs, and nothing online I can find - owned by the Woodland Trust, who don't seem to have a drone policy on their website...

Parking is currently £5 cash for all day parking. If the main car park is full, which it will be, the warden will guide you to the overflow field which has plenty of spaces.

Wikipedia:
The cliffs are mostly formed of blue lias, a sequence of carboniferous limestone layers from the Triassic period, folded and tilted in places but otherwise level, while Witches Point is composed of Sutton Stone, a lighter-colored limestone which overlays the blue lias and represents an unconformity, with a gap between the two strata of around 150 million years.

Heights of Abraham Matlock (By Woody305)

The Heights of Abraham is a tourist attraction in Derbyshire.

It consists of a hilltop park on top of Masson Hill, accessed from the village by the Heights of Abraham cable car. The heights are named after a supposed resemblance to the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Heights of Abraham, in Quebec, Canada, where James Wolfe died in battle.

Amongst the attractions in the park, which has been open since Victorian times, are cavern and mine tours. There are also views of the dramatic scenery of the valley of the River Derwent. The cable car was opened in 1984 to provide easier access.

The Heights of Abraham are listed as grade II in the register of historic parks and gardens of special historic interest in England.

Standon Hall, Staffordshire (By D0c.Col)

Standon Hall was built in 1910 as a manor house to the design of Liverpool architect J. Francis Doyle, and is located in Standon near Ecceshall, Staffordshire.
The Hall was formerly owned and built for Sir Thomas Anderton Salt, a director of the North Staffordshire Railway company, but its use as a family home was short-lived and was sold to Staffordshire County Council in 1925 for subsequent use as a hospital.
The establishment of pavilions for tuberculosis patients in 1930 and its successive orthopaedic treatment in the Hall itself established its role in providing medical care during critical periods in history, particularly in the early to mid-20th century when such diseases were prevalent. The medical facilities were also utilised in 1939 when it was temporarily requisitioned by the War Office to care for wounded soldiers.
Upon the opening of Stafford General Hospital in 1983, the NHS sold the property into the private sector and the manor house itself was converted into a residential care home for up to 22 elderly ladies and gentlemen and the outbuildings, then known as "The Beeches", specialised in dementia care for an additional 21 elderly residents.
Some 30 years later, plans were submitted to convert the hall into 19 apartments, and outbuildings into seven new homes, but the planning permission for the venture was eventually rejected in 2018.
The hall’s future was uncertain, like many old and abandoned buildings within the UK, it seemed destined to fall into disrepair, However, in 2019 the Grade II-listed hall, that had stood empty for several years and was being considered for auction, was purchased for the princely sum of £1.2 million by local entrepreneurs Joanne and Andrey Magiy and their journey to transform the disused building into a stunning wedding and events venue begun.
The Hall’s architectural significance and adaptive reuse reflect its enduring importance within the local community and after much hard graft and dedication to the task by their team; the building was rescued from dereliction and is now fully restored.

I parked in the hall's grounds and the management team at Standon granted me permission to film there.

Alternatively park on The Croft in Tenby itself, there is a footpath down to the beach and again it's about 1km along the beach to Waterwych Bay. It is fully accessible at medium / low tide. It is *completely* cut off at high tide so do keep a close eye on tide times!

Blagdon Lake lies in a valley at the northern edge of the Mendip Hills, close to the village of Blagdon and approximately 10 miles (16 km) south of Bristol, England. The lake was created by Bristol Water (Bristol Waterworks Company as it was known then), when it dammed the River Yeo, starting construction in 1898, to designs by Charles Hawksley, and completing this in 1905. The Wrington Vale Light Railway was constructed primarily to bring building materials for the lake.

On the edge of SSI, plenty of birds around the lake, so one to be mindful of.

Tilehurst Water Tower (By apreading)

Erected in 1932, Tilehurst Water Tower, is an iconic landmark on the ridge line in Tilehurst, a district in the Western part of Reading. People from Reading know they are near home when they are coming along the M4 from the West and they can see the top of the tower, several miles before they get to Junction 12.

In November 2018 the tower was illuminated in poppy red to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. The tower remained illuminated, and visible at night from a wide area, until Remembrance Day on 11 November.

It still fulfils its function as a water tower today, and at the top it also houses a number of telephone masts and receivers and also the transmitter for Greatest Hits Radio Berkshire & North Hampshire, a local radio station.

The tower holds a huge 900,000 litres of water, in two 4.5 metre deep tanks and provides around 10 per cent all the water used in Reading, serving 12,000 homes and businesses.

The memorial is in the form of a classical temple. Most sources describe it as "round", though it is actually octagonal in shape. The structure has something of the appearance of an ancient ruin. This was deliberate, and meant to signify the many shortened and ruined lives caused by the conflict.

Access is via the footpath from Stonehaven harbour towards Dunnottar Castle. Land appears to be owned by Aberdeenshire Council, who at the time of flying and according to GADC FOI request response, have no byelaws relating to recreational drone use from its land.

Can get busy with walkers so you need to pick suitable time for least interference.

Packwood House (By D0c.Col)

Packwood House Is a Grade I listed timber-framed Tudor manor house in Packwood on the Solihull border near Lapworth, Warwickshire. It has a wealth of tapestries and fine furniture, and is known for the garden of yews. The Fetherston family owned land at Packwood from the fifteenth through to the middle of the nineteenth century.
The house began as a modest timber-framed farmhouse constructed for John Fetherston between 1556 and 1560. In about 1570, William Fetherston built a new ‘great mancient howse’ which was later handed over to his son John in 1599. The house John inherited was tall, detached and nearly square in plan, with triple gables and a great brick cow barn to the north with further farm buildings to the east. The last member of the Fetherston family died in 1876.
In 1904 the house and Packwood estate of approximately 134 acres was bought at auction by Birmingham industrialist Alfred Ash envisioning it as a legacy for his son, Graham Baron Ash. He is reported to have said: ‘I bought it because the Boy wanted it.’
At the outbreak of war in 1914, Ash volunteered for the medical corps. From there, he was transferred to the Royal Flying Corps, but wrecked four aircrafts during his tenure. Eventually he served as a Balloon Observation Officer.
It was eventually inherited in 1925 by Graham who then spent the following two decades creating a house of Tudor character. He purchased an extensive collection of 16th- and 17th-century furniture, some obtained from nearby Baddesley Clinton, and the great barn of the farm was converted into a Tudor-style Great hall with a sprung floor for dancing. It was connected to the main house via the addition of a Long Gallery in 1931.
Packwood House stands as a testament to Ash’s meticulous vision and passion for preservation and restoration. It drove him to travel extensively, absorbing cultures and collecting treasures to adorn Packwood's halls.
His driving ambition to rid the old house of any trace of its Georgian and Victorian inheritance was in tune with the fashion of the times. The classical style of the eighteenth century and the dark, heavily furnished interiors of Queen Victoria’s reign were deeply unfashionable in inter-war England.
His dedication extended beyond mere aesthetics as he envisioned Packwood as a living history, where guests could experience the essence of Old England. Lavish parties, complete with theatrical productions and musical performances, brought the house to life, echoing its heyday as a social hub.
Adjacent to the house is a Yew Garden which is accessed by raised steps and a wrought-iron gate. The garden path follows an avenue of trees, which leads up a spiral hill. Some of the yews at Packwood are taller than 15m, despite the soil on the estate having high levels of clay. This cans be detrimental to the trees during wet periods and as a result, parts of the garden are often closed to the public while restoration work is undertaken.
On 30 June 1941, Graham Baron Ash donated £30,000 pounds to the National Trust along with Packwood, its collections, park and gardens in memory of his parents. The transfer of ownership came with stipulations including its meticulous preservation in his 'Memorandum of wishes', in order to safeguard it’s reputation as a restored symbol of Old England for future generations to come. Ash also stipulated that all furniture should be kept in the same position, that no extra furnishings should be added, and that freshly cut flowers should be placed in every room.

TOAL was from Packwood Lane that runs straight through the middle of the estate and is not owned by the National Trust. Parking is plentiful in their free carpark and refreshments and comfort breaks can be had, without having to buy a ticket, from their cafe. There was also a mobile refreshments van in their outside picnic area.

ICI Power Station (By Kcscott)

The power station and buildings have been Abandoned since 2000s and the buildings going to ruins. Plenty to see and explore with the drone as there are also smaller buildings situated around the grounds.
History:
The Power station is situated on the old ICI site which was a leader in explosive and chemical manufacturing. Many processes in explosive manufacture require steam, heat or power - in most explosive factories, this is provided by at least one on-site power plant, and ICI Ardeer was no exception. The power plant still standing is not the original, it probably dates from the '40s or '50s. Three coal-fired boilers provided steam which was sent through insulated overground pipes to buildings all over the factory, and there was also enough steam to drive two electrical generators.

Old Auchans house (By Kcscott)

Large trees located round the perimeter and some smaller ones inside the castle walls.
Area has been fenced off due to safety concerns for the structure so access to the castle isn't allowed.

History of Auchans House:
It was originally a mid 16th century stone Z-plan tower house, founded by William Wallace of Dundonald and Auchans. Built with materials removed from Dundonald Castle, the long main block, is of three storeys and an attic. With its vaulted basements and being of slightly different construction, it could be part of an earlier building. Flanking its south wall, is a central round stair tower and a terrace which was originally encased by a barmkin wall. In 1640, the house was converted into a L-plan, when Sir William Cochrane of Cowdon, added a wing of three storeys and a garret. In 1667, the wing was extended by the addition of a block with a crow-stepped gable, flanked by a round stair tower and a corbelled-out square, round angle tower. The main entrance in the re-entrant angle, was through a Renaissance-style doorway below an armorial shield in the square stair-turret. Sadly this once magnificent Scottish baronial residence, is now a complete ruin

Good place for Beginners.

History Of Kerelaw Castle:
Kerelaw Castle is an altered massive ruined 13th- or 14th-century tower and courtyard, which is much overgrown. The basement was vaulted, and the building was remodelled in the 16th or 17th century.
Kerelaw was a property of the Lockharts in 1191, but later passed to the Campbells of Loudoun. The castle was built by the Cunningham Earls of Glencairn (Maxwelton), but was apparently destroyed (or sacked anyway) in a feud in 1488, and then sacked by the Montgomerys of Eglinton in 1528. Eglinton Castle was burned in retaliation. William Cunningham, 9th Earl, was active as a Covenanter, and led an unsuccessful rebellion against Cromwell’s occupation in 1653. He was made Chancellor of Scotland, after the Restoration, from 1661 to 1664.
The property had been sold to the Boyds in 1609, then to the Cunninghams of Cunninghamhead, before going to the Hamiltons in the middle of the 17th century. The ruined castle was remodelled around 1830 as a garden folly for Kerelaw or Grange House, an 18th-century mansion, which has itself been demolished, when large Gothic windows were inserted.

Craigmillar castle (By jaybee)

The castle has been used in some movies, outlander and outlaw king.
Craigmillar is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scotland. The central tower house, or keep, is surrounded by a 15th-century courtyard wall with “particularly fine” defensive features.
Craigmillar Castle is best known for its association with Mary, Queen of Scots. Following an illness after the birth of her son, the future James VI, Mary arrived at Craigmillar on 20 November 1566 to convalesce. Before she left on 7 December 1566, a pact known as the “Craigmillar Bond” was made, with or without her knowledge, to dispose of her husband Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley.

Skenfrith Castle (Castell Ynysgynwraidd) (By clinkadink)

Significant medieval fortress with a substantial central tower

One of the ‘Three Castles of Gwent’ (along with Grosmont and White Castle) founded by Norman lord William fitz Osbern in the early 12th century, the remains of Skenfrith we see today are of a later fortress constructed in the 13th century by Hubert de Burgh. The castle’s well-preserved walls surround a circular keep, similar to those seen at Bronllys and Tretower. Built on an earthen mound, this sturdy structure was a last line of defence should the castle fall under attack.

Between them, the Three Castles controlled a large area of confrontational border country between the River Wye and the Black Mountains, with Skenfrith occupying a strategic spot on the banks of the River Monnow overlooking one of the main routes between Wales and England.

A popular 'Wild Swimming' spot, this is a river pool not to be missed. It’s big enough to swim laps, deep enough to dive down to the depths and clear enough to see fish nibble at your toes.
The lake is truly beautiful. Its relatively shallow depths result in frequent changes in temperature, meaning it will be icy cold in winter, fresh after wind or rain, and like a warm bath in summer sunshine.
Beware of the power of the wind in this valley. The distance across the lake may look short but the chop can be big and zap your energy on a crossing.

TOAL is close to lay-by and road so take all precautions to be compliant and fly responsibly

Moggs Eye (Near Skegness) (By Cosmo)

Had planned on going to Cleethorpes as it was quite a miserable morning raining on and off. Pretty crazy thinking on my part though as it was Easter Weekend Bank Holiday Monday. Then by the time we got there the sun was shining and it was turning out to be a great day at the coast so Cleethorpes was packed.
Drove south looking for some quiet beach access, thought we might have found a spot a couple of times only to find I was in the FRZ of a small runway and then at a nature reserve.
The area has ample parking and some public toilets, did not have much in the way of interesting landmarks though but it was a nice open area, not many people about despite it being a really nice day.

Ineos Petrochemical Plant and Refinery (By mynameisjoe)

This is Scotland's only crude oil refinery and has the capacity for processing 140,000 barrels (22,000 m3) of crude oil a day on its 700 hectare site in Grangemouth. It is currently undergoing the process of being turned into an oil terminal for the for the import, storage and distribution of a range of Fuels. All refinery production is expected to close around 2027 with mass redundancies. There are plenty of places to park, I will highlight my TOAL for this shot. There is LOTS of security, so be prepared to be questioned if your TOAL is close to any of their buildings.There is also LOADS of interference if you get too close and I wouldn't recommend you flying directly overhead. Unfortunaley on my trip, none of the towers were emitting any steam. But when they are the site is pretty impressive

St Michael Church (By Kcscott)

Nice little church situated off the A1136 with a large car park Infront of it which can be very busy at times. Only Obstruction to watch out for is trees around the church perimeter.

The oldest part of the Church is Early English, which is known since there is a pillar supporting the south aisle roof which is 13th century. The small Church was rebuilt in 14th-15th centuries, though an extension built in the early 1900’s made the church much bigger.
The Church was extended in 1912-1914 by the building of the north part of the church, including the tower, the newer nave and chancel. They were built out of a bequest by Joseph Chapman, a timber merchant who is buried in the graveyard. Sir Walter Tapper, a renowned church architect, built them in a 13th century style. Unusually, part of this extension made to the Church included a new nave situated next to the church building, alongside what was then the current nave. The newer nave was much longer than the previous one and results in the Church having a somewhat unusual shape, being rather wide on the south side. This addition of a longer nave adjacent to a smaller one, meant it was difficult when in the ancient nave to see the altar at the front of the newer nave. As a result, the space when you enter the Church from the south door which is the ancient nave is now used as a hall space; whereas the 1900’s extension is used today for worship.

The Atom (By Banjonic)

Design by Peter Meacock with Katarina Novomestska and Architecture Central Workshop.

Pendle's Panopticon, 'Atom', rests on the hillside above Wycoller village in Wycoller Country Park. Constructed in ferro-cement with a surface coating of metal-based paint, it is both a striking contemporary viewing point and shelter from which to enjoy Pendle's glorious scenery, and an intriguing and beautiful object which can be viewed from afar. From inside, its circular viewing spaces frame spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Wycoller is a historic settlement dating back beyond 1000BC. It has close links with the Brontes, and Charlotte is thought to have been a frequent visitor. In 1973 the village was declared a conservation area and the surrounding 350 acres of farmland were designated a Country Park. Wycoller has several unusual architectural features, including seven small bridges that cross Wycoller Beck, and an 18th-century five-aisled barn, now converted into a visitor centre.

Tottenham house is a grade 1 listed English country house it sits between great bedwyn & Savernake forest, I’ve been meaning to try & fly this location for a while but had not realised it was under construction, after not wanting a wasted journey I still proceeded to fly,
I did do a bit of research on google & I shall add a couple of links, from what I’ve seen this place looks amazing when in tip top condition & would like to re visit when all work is done,
TOAL & parking was very easy I parked at saint Katherine's church great bedwyn, parked in a car park at the side of the church & walked down a bit of a muddy single track road remembering the location was to my left, where I then cut up through some trees which on looks towards the location, only thing you have to be really carful of is the over hanging trees which you can’t get away from, I hand launched the drone then hovered & slowly moved out from under the trees over a field,
I’m not sure when the renovation will be complete but that’s when it will be worth another visit,

Aston-by-Stone Hall, Staffordshire (By D0c.Col)

Aston-by-Stone Hall, located nr Stone, Staffordshire, was designed in 1855 by Edward Welby Pugin for Father Edward Huddlestone, with possible incorporation of earlier elements from a convent by CF Hansom. The Grade II listing is attributed to its architectural significance, featuring works by both Hansom and Pugin, intact survival of Pugin's design, and its historical importance as a site of Roman Catholic worship, including housing the remains of St Chad during the Reformation. The property's history spans centuries, passing through various families before being acquired by the Birmingham Roman Catholic Diocese in 1959. The house, primarily constructed of red brick with decorative blue and gault brick detailing, boasts a 'pinwheel' floor plan centred around an open-well staircase hall. The interior features richly detailed fireplaces and a chapel with salvaged architectural elements possibly from the earlier convent. The hall was closed when I visited and its owners are looking for funds for its full restoration before using it for retired clergy.

I parked along Church Lane just off the A34 and TOAL was from the same place. It's a narrow lane, that forms part of the 'Two Saints Way' OS Walk and also has two Churches along the same short road (St Michael Archangel and St Saviours).

Wimbledon Common (By paulrd)

Wimbledon Common, located in Wimbledon, South West London, has a rich history dating back centuries. Originally part of the Manor of Wimbledon, it was used for various purposes over the years, including grazing land, agriculture, and hunting grounds for the local nobility.

In the 19th century, Wimbledon Common became a popular leisure destination, attracting visitors for picnics, walks, and horse riding. It was during this time that efforts were made to preserve the common from encroaching development.

Today, Wimbledon Common remains a beloved green space, offering recreational activities such as walking, running, cycling, and birdwatching. It is also home to various wildlife and plant species, contributing to its importance as a natural habitat within an urban environment.

It is a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” and it does get very busy during the summer. So care should ve taken not to disurb the natural wildlife and avoiding flight over groups of people. You should also avoid the helicopter routes

There is free parking on the roads around the common but you may have to drive around a while to find a space, especially at weekends.

Moseley Old Hall (By D0c.Col)

Moseley Old Hall, situated in Fordhouses, north of Wolverhampton England, holds a significant place in British history as one of the sanctuaries of King Charles II during his desperate flight to France following the defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Owned by the National Trust today, this Grade II* listed building has witnessed pivotal moments in the country's past.
Originally, the estate belonged to the Cordsall family until it was acquired by Henry Pitt of Bushby, a prominent figure among the Merchants of the Staple, in 1583. Around 1600, Henry constructed what would become known as Moseley Old Hall. This half-timbered structure, nestled in secluded woodland, served as a retreat and home for generations to come. After Henry's passing in 1602, the hall passed to his daughter, Alice Pitt, upon her marriage to Thomas Whitgreave of Bridgeford, Staffordshire.
The hall's historical significance peaked during the aftermath of the Battle of Worcester in 1651, which is also on record as being the last battle of the English Civil War. King Charles II, pursued by Parliamentarians, sought refuge at Moseley Old Hall on September 8th. Disguised in workman's attire and suffering from ill-fitting shoes that had wounded his feet, Charles was warmly received by Thomas Whitgreave, Alice Whitgreave, and John Huddleston, the Catholic priest of the house. They provided him with much-needed rest, nourishment, and care, including tending to his injured feet. Charles spent crucial days in hiding, concealed in a priest-hole within the hall, while outside, a confrontation between Whitgreave and Parliamentarians unfolded. With the help of Huddleston, Charles eventually planned his escape and departed, continuing his journey to safety.
The family residence moved to Moseley Court around the 1820s, which was a new Regency-style house built for George Whitgreave. Few structural changes were made to the Hall until around 1870, when the outer walls of the building were replaced by bricks, and casements replaced the Elizabethan windows. Around that time, a first floor corridor was constructed. Descendants of the Whitgreave family owned the house until 1925, at which point the estate was sold and subsequently used as a farmhouse, falling into a state of disrepair.
In 1940, Will Wiggin initiated restoration efforts, though they were halted by the onset of World War II. Following Wiggin's death, the hall and an acre of land were bequeathed to the National Trust in 1962, leading to its eventual opening to the public a year later. The hall was nearly empty of furniture at the time but both the furnishings and pictures have been subsequently lent or given to the Trust. In 1981 the roof and brickwork were repaired, and the bargeboards and finials were replaced.
Today, Moseley Old Hall stands as a meticulously restored testament to its rich history. Furnished with period pieces, including the original four-poster bed used by Charles II, the hall offers visitors a glimpse into its past. Surrounding the hall is a recreated 17th-century-style enclosed garden, featuring period plants, herb gardens, topiaries, and more, providing a tranquil backdrop to this storied site.
In 2023, the Trust acquired John Huddleston’s prayer book, after it had sold at action for £6900. This rare artefact was owned by the priest who help save Charles II and was present during Charles’ deathbed conversion to Catholicism in 1685. The prayer book is now on display at Mosely Old Hall further enriching the visitor experience and commemorating the hall's role in sheltering the fleeing monarch.

Parking is free and right next to the hall. I TOAL in the adjacent farmers field. Walking back up the entrance road about 100m there was a break in the hedgeline that enabled me to fly from just outside of the NT boundary. The road is not owned by NT but is narrow and I wouldn't advocate flying from there! There a FRZ the other side of the road behind the Hall due to the proximity of Featherstone Prison but should not affect your flight.

Pen-Y-Ghent and Fountains Fell (By AlbionDrones)

A target of opportunity for the drone spotted during our early March Yorkshire Dales trip, the snow capped fells called for us to fly as we drove along the road between them. Strobes fitted and 2 locations selected to minimise flight distance and maintain VLOS with the drone...

A cold breeze and only 4C at take-off height chilled my fingers to the bone on the 2 short flights, but it was worth it to capture the wintery landscape atop the fells - both near and those farther away in the distance...

Talley Abbey (By 20Five)

Skeletal remains of a unique religious settlement

Talley was founded in the 1180s by Rhys ap Gruffydd.

This was the first and only abbey in Wales for the Premonstratensians, monks who were also known as the ‘White Canons’ from the colour of their habit.

The church tower, standing almost to its full height, is the most impressive feature of the ruin.

This site is managed by CADW who allow drone flights over most of their properties as long as the operator follows the UK Drone Code.

Little Langdale Lake District (By D0c.Col)

There are a plethora of places to TOAL around the Little langdale Valley Cumbria, most of which are owned by the National Trust as Open Access areas. We started a circular walk from Elterwater, taking in the Cathedral Cave, Colwith Force and Skelwith Bridge/Skelwith Force before returning along the banks of the Brathay River to Elterwater about 13.5k. There was a single track road that leads up the Stang End Farm and this is where my TOAL was for the photograph. There is also the road that leads to Hardknot Pass, which was where a lot of my ground footage was taken before reaching the old Quarry Works and the cave.

Parking is a premium around this area as most places off road are used for passing but it is possible to pull over I guess (we were obviously walking). There is a National Trust carpark in Elterwater to start a walk from but I was staying in the village so it wasn't needed.

TOAL from the square, there are some concrete plinths that can be used for sitting on. Despite the skyscrapers there is a good view in all directions, allowing good VLOS for flying for up to 500m in several directions.

I flew in February 2024 at 945pm in the dark - watch out for cranes and lights - and again the following morning at 645-7am for the sunrise.

Car parking is not cheap, and lots of roadworks meant a difficult drive back out from the centre, but there are options to park and ride which may be simpler anc cheaper, although I have not explored this option.

Long Meg and her Daughters (By D0c.Col)

The most famous of the many legends that surround the stones is that they were once a coven of witches who were turned to stone by a wizard from Scotland named Michael Scot. It is said the stones cannot be counted – but, if anyone is able to count them twice and come to the same total – the spell will be broken or it will bring very bad luck. Another legend states that if you walk round the circles and count the number of stones correctly, then put your ear to Long Meg, you will hear her whisper. The name itself is said to come from a local witch, Meg of Meldon, who was alive in the early 17th century. From a certain angle, the Long Meg stone resembles the profile of a witch, facing the stones. However that Meg of Meldon is the name given to Margaret Fenwick (née Selsby) who lived at Meldon near Morpeth, Northumberland, some 70 miles from these stones.

There is a large carpark just down the lane from the stones that is marked in DS and Penrith is just a few miles away.

Conisbrough Viaduct (By milkmanchris)

Conisbrough Viaduct is a former railway viaduct, near to Cadeby and Conisbrough in South Yorkshire, England. The viaduct consists of two sections of brick and stone on each bank, connected by a lattice girder section, some 113–116 feet (34–35 m) over the River Don. The height and space were required should shipping need to navigate along the river. The viaduct carried the Dearne Valley Railway over the River Don between 1909 and 1966, after closure it was converted into a foot and cycle path. The structure is grade II listed, and is notable for being one of the first bridges in Britain to be built using a rope system above the viaduct known as a "Blondin".

A bit of walking involved to get from parking, but its a good track from both sides.

Locals very friendly, also possible to fly out to Conisrough Castle from the viaduct

Elterwater, Lake District (By D0c.Col)

Elterwater is a village in the English Lake District and the county of Cumbria. The village lies half a mile (800 m) north-west of the lake of Elter Water, from which it derives its name. Both are situated in the valley of Great Langdale.

Elterwater Bridge is a Grade II listed structure dating to at least the 18th century.

In the past, the principal industries have been farming, quarrying for slate and gunpowder manufacture. The first two activities continue, while evidence of the latter survives in the grounds of the Langdale Estate, a holiday development founded in the 1930s and redeveloped as a timeshare in the 1980s.

In the present day, tourism is a principal source of income and the village is popular with visitors of all kinds, particularly fell-walkers due to its proximity to many of the Lake Districts most popular fells. The village is home to a plethora of holiday homes, as well as the Britannia Inn and Elterwater Hostel, a former YHA hostel, that was saved from closure and taken independent in 2013.

There is a National Trust Carpark next to the Elterwater Bridge, which was the start our stunning 13.5 km circular walk around the Elter Lake and eventually coming back over the Skelwith Bridge following the river Brathay on the well maintained trail back to Elterwater carpark (you can see it in my video as I stayed in the cottage you see at the end of it). There is a pub and an excellent cafe in the small village centre and only 5 minutes from Ambleside.

Although the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust there it is open access and there are places where you can TOAL without trespass.

Fairhaven Lake and Spitfire Memorial (By PingSpike)

A nice boating lake in Lytham St Annes, which is also home to the Spitfire Memorial.

Oil rigs and wind farms within VLOS reach if you walk out on to the beach first (or have a large, visible drone).

Excellent place for dog walking, or just a day out. Plenty of chip shops and pubs all within walking distance.

The lake is on the edge of the Blackpool FRZ so you'll need to get permission to fly here, but Blackpool ATC are very drone friendly and usually approve requests within minutes if done via Air Portal. I requested a 400ft height limit for this one, which they were happy to approve. You can work around the FRZ if you're flying out to sea.

Abbots Pool (By richrab)

Abbots Pool is a popular walking area 2.5 miles west of Clifton Suspension Bridge.
There are plenty of photo areas above and along the pool, with a few small waterfalls leading off the main body of water.

Lots of tree cover and overhanging tree branches making almost a drone obstacle course.

Access via a small carpark off Manor road with a two minute walk to the pool.

Surrounding the pool is idyllic mature woodland containing some massive oak and beech trees. An abundance of wildlife can be found here and most of the area has been designated as a Local Nature Reserve. It was landscaped, using Pulhamite, an artificial type of rock of historic importance in the 1920s by the Wills family who owned the area until just after the Second World War.

Checking the information signs on prohibited activity, swimming and fishing is not allowed but no mention of Drones.

The pepper box is on national trust but TOAL was literally 40 - 50 feet across the road off there land, I parked in the car park at the location & walked across the car park then across the cattle grid taking me across the road, where there is a gate slightly set back where's there's an entrance to a big field, I stayed this side of gate on some grass, great thing to the subject was only about 60 - 70 foot away from TOAL point,
was not overly busy but can imagine it does get busy so do be mindful if visiting, dog walkers, family etc, in all just a nice little place; well worth a visit.

It was granted to the 1st Earl of Pembroke by 1544.
He built the first Wilton House in the 1540s.

Longford Castle (By clinkadink)

Longford Castle was originally built in the late 16th century during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I by the Gorges family to an unusual triangular plan. The caste was built with the proceeds of the contents of one of the Duke of Medina-Sidonia’s galleons which sank in the wake of the Spanish Armada.

In the 18th century the 2nd Earl of Radnor, employed the architect James Wyatt to transform it into a hexagonal palace; a project which was abandoned. It was left to the 4th Earl of Radnor and Victorian architect Anthony Salvin to complete Longford.

Longford Castle, is one of the grandest stately homes in Britain and has been the residence of three families in just over four centuries; the Gorges, the Coleraines, and for over three hundred years, the Bouveries, who continue to live there today.

Laurens Des Bouverie, a Huguenot, came to England from Flanders in 1568 fleeing religious persecution, settled in Kent, was a successful silk merchant, and his descendants acquired land and property which comprises the estates today. The family was ennobled in 1747 with Sir Jacob Des Bouverie becoming the First Viscount Folkestone while his son, William, was created an Earl in 1765. Longford has continued to be home to the Earls of Radnor ever since.

Shipham Hill Quarry (By Kirky)

At the top of the gorge near cheddar, 360 degree stunning views, bit of a nightmare to find this one when using the sat nav, which takes you to warrens hill ( where there is not entry for the quarry ) ignore warrens hill & head for mendips raceway, warrens hill road shipham, there is two sides to warrens hill, so its easier to head for the raceway which will take you there, go past the raceway & you will see places to Toal to your left & right, I Toal'd at the side of a farmers field down the bottom to my right, where the owner turned up in his tractor & was absolutely fine, he got out of his tractor & wanted to talk about his drone he got for Christmas, looked at my screen & said there amazing things,
Apart from that there was no one there, you may get the odd car or van pull up which I see twice at first, I'm assuming just people on a break or a little rest or admiring the views,
gorgeous place would visit again as there's many other lovely places nearby.

NOTE, when you Toal from anywhere within this vicinity do be extra carful as when you are facing west / south west behind you is bristol airports FRZ which is between 900 - 1000 metres behind you.

An interesting little ruined village on Antrim's North Coast. It cannot be seen from the main road so for years it was known as 'the hidden village of Galboly'. After visiting the village you can continue on up the hill via a track that leads to the plateau where there are spectacular views towards Scotland. Very few people apart from hikers and locals visited this place until it was used as a filming location for Game of Thrones and now in summer it can be quite busy. The nearest places for food and toilets are the nearby villages of Glenariff and Carnlough.

Whatley Quarry, Frome (By Kirky)

This place has absolutely breath taking views, situated in Frome, TOAL & parking is an absolute walk in the park.

Where I’ve placed the marker, park there at the end, (if you’re driving) then to your left is an entrance to a bridal way & a small piece of woodland, you walk up through the woods & to your left it opens up to a set of about a dozen shallow steps & you have perfect 180 views at the top, it is fenced off & very safe.

Directions, head to Frome to a place called Mells, you look for a road called Knaptons Hill, do a left onto Holes lane where a few yards down the road you see a cross road with an old red telephone box there, do a left at the junction opposite the red phone box (can’t find a name of the road) single track road you will go along which comes to a dead end which is fine to park, easy to turn around too.

It was completely deserted when I was there but a breath of fresh air, I can imagine it may get people, and dog walkers in & around at times so be mindful of that, but myself & my friend who is from that area, she said it is always very quiet & many many places in the area alike, worth a visit any day !

Stunning place.

The Nook - Bedworth (By DeanoG60)

The Nook Bedworth is a nature reserve with lots of wildlife a huge pond with an over grown inaccessible bridge running through the middle of it. The bridge is actually old railway lines from the day's of the local pit and was used back then for moving coal from the local mine. Years later after the line was decommissioned they filled it with concrete to make a bridge through the middle of the pond that was accessible back then. But some years later it was cut off from public access due to safety concerns, and the concrete was eroding away. Now it got taken over by local volunteers who along side the council keep it nice for the local community.

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.

The Giant’s Grave is a long barrow, which is a burial place of Britain’s early farming communities and amongst the oldest visible field monuments (from Early and Middle Neolithic periods 3400-2400 BC).

Used for communal burial, often with only parts of the human remains selected for interment, all are considered to be important. Giant’s Grave was partly excavated in 1865, when a primary deposit including up to four skeletons was discovered with a leaf shaped flint arrowhead close by.

Annesley Old Church (By Buzbysmg)

Park on slip road adjacent (sign posted Annesley Old Church) TOAL at same location.

Annesley Old Church or the Church of All Saints, Annesley Park, is a disused church in a ruinous condition which stands on a mound near to Annesley Hall, Nottinghamshire. The building remains are Grade I listed.

The church is built in stone and measures approximately 35 metres (115 ft) by 14.5 metres (48 ft). The standing remains include the roofless west tower, nave, chancel and a large 14th-century lady chapel to the south. The Lady Chapel, known as the "Felley Chantry” after the priory at Felley to whom the patronage once belonged, contained three fine sedilia and a piscina and a large east window with reticulated stone tracery. The surrounding graveyard contains a variety of mainly 17th- and 18th-century grave markers.

The present building, constructed by the Annesley family in 1356, replaced a previous Norman building on the same site. After the Annesley estate had passed by marriage to the Chaworths, Patrick Chaworth, 3rd Viscount Chaworth, in 1686 built the flight of steps leading up to the church and arranged for a carving of his coat of arms, or Achievement, to be fixed one of the tower walls in the church. As the village of Annesley developed into a mining community it was decided to build a new church on a site nearer to the growing colliery community. The new church, All Saints' Church, Annesley, was consecrated in 1874. Occasional services, especially Harvest Festivals, continued to be held in the old church until 1942. Following the cessation of use the building deteriorated and Viscount Chaworth's achievement was transferred to the new church. When the Annesley estate was sold in 1973 the buildings fell into a state of total disrepair and were sold by the Church Commissioners to Ashfield District Council for a nominal £1. In 2012 Ashfield District Council completed a programme of preservation and restoration to make the site safe and accessible to visitors.

The ruined building was Grade I listed in 1966 and scheduled as an Ancient Monument in 1977. It is also on the Heritage at Risk register.

Annesley Hall (By Buzbysmg)

Park on slip road just outside site boundary (signposted Annesley Old Church), take off from same position as parking.

Annesley Hall is a Grade II listed country house near Annesley in Nottinghamshire and the ancestral home of the Chaworth-Musters family. The 13th-century park, 17th-century terraces and 19th-century pleasure gardens and walled gardens of the hall are Grade II listed.

The Hall dates from the mid-13th century and was the home of the Annesley family, passing to the Chaworth family when Alice, heiress to the Manor of Annesley, married George Chaworth, third son of Sir Thomas Chaworth of Wiverton, in the 15th century. The Chaworth family were to possess the estate for the next 350 years. It was significantly enlarged and improved by Patrick Chaworth, 3rd Viscount Chaworth, in the 17th century when damage to his family seat at Wiverton obliged him to move to Annesley.

Mary Chaworth, who lived at the Hall, was the boyhood lover of the poet Lord Byron, who lived at nearby Newstead Abbey. The uncle of the poet Byron had killed William Chaworth in a duel at the Star and Garter tavern in Pall Mall, London after a meeting of the "Nottinghamshire Club" that met there every month. Mary Chaworth eventually married John Musters of Colwick Hall in 1805. The Chaworth-Musters family became one of the most powerful families in Nottinghamshire. John Chaworth-Musters was appointed High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire for 1864–65. Structural alterations to the hall took place in the 18th and 19th centuries, including the addition of a service wing c.1880.

Annesley Lodge, the former gatehouse to the hall, is also grade II listed.

20th and 21st century
It remained in the hands of the Chaworth-Musters family until sold by Major Robert Patricius Chaworth-Musters in 1972. The new purchasers carried out extensive internal alterations and removed many of the 17th century fittings.

The hall suffered a fire in 1997 which caused damage to the structure and it has not been lived in since. The hall is now in private ownership, in very poor condition and not open to the public. English Heritage have listed the building on the 'Buildings at Risk Register' as high vulnerability and deteriorating.

Two of the three floors at the hall were severely damaged in a fire on 16 May 2015.

Shaftoe Crags (By mollin)

Shaftoe Crags is a great place to view stunning landscapes in all direction. The crags are on Access Land, which is bounded and crossed by public footpaths and a bridleway. Check OS Maps for details of paths, access land extents, and elevations.
Shaftoe Crags is popular with climbers, hikers, dog-walkers, trig point baggers etc., so choose a quiet time to visit.
There is free parking for a few cars at W3W: ///supplier.oiled.imprinted
There is a circular walk from the car park: Follow the bridleway to the west, keeping the edge of the field on your right. When you reach the gate you are just about at the boundary of the Access Land.
Go through the gate and follow the path. Note this can be a wet and muddy walk from the car park, wear appropriate footwear.
Turn left at W3W: ///simulates.computer.roses and you will find Shaftoe Grange on your right – this is private property and lies outside of the Access Land boundary.
This path is also on the boundary of Access Land.
There is a trig point at W3W: ///firms.shipyards.eyelash
Follow the public footpaths round to return to the car park.
Depending on your appetite for TOAL from public footpaths on Access Land, you can TOAL from outside the boundary, subject to VLOS limitations. Again, use OS maps to assess access land boundaries, and elevation from TOAL point to trig point. There are plenty of good TOAL places along the trail, just choose one that suits your needs, you may need to fly from a couple of different locations.
As ever, be considerate of wildlife/ livestock, and the landowner who allows parking.

Tan Hill Inn, Richmond (By D0c.Col)

The Tan Hill Inn in Richmond, North Yorkshire holds the distinction of being the highest in Britain at an elevation of 1,732 feet or 528 meters above sea level.

The Yorkshire Dales have a history of lead mining and the current Inn was originally built in the 17th Century in order to cater to the needs of the local mining community. Strategically located along an old packhorse route, it served as a resting place for travellers and a stopping point for the essential transportation of goods.

It’s well known for its isolation, with its nearest neighbours some 4 miles away and the closest town over 10, it generates it’s own electricity and utilises a natural spring water supply that was discovered by Hazel twig divining rods.

During winter months, it can be particularly challenging to reach due to snow and harsh weather conditions. Snowdrifts can be substantial, and the inn has featured in several headlines over the years for occasionally been cut off from the outside world. Despite this, it remains a popular destination for those seeking a unique and remote experience.

Campaigning by ramblers in the 60s led to the opening of public rights of way and the establishment of many more long-distance footpaths. The Coast to Coast path which passes through nearby Keld, became popular for walkers, which in turn led to a dramatic increase in visitors; especially after the opening of the Pennine Way, Britain’s first long-distance footpath.

The Inn is not just a place for tourists though; it also plays a vital role in the local community. It's a gathering place for locals and a hub for various events and activities throughout the year and has gained a reputation for being a lively and welcoming venue, attracting visitors from near and far.

In the 20th century, the Inn underwent restoration efforts to preserve its historical charm. The innkeepers have also managed to maintain its traditional character while making necessary updates for modern comfort.

Whether you're interested in the stunning natural surroundings, the historical significance, or the unique experiences it offers, the Tan Hill Inn is a notable destination in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

Parking is a breeze at the Tan Hill Pub, loads of space available. The issue is getting there, especially in the winter. Stonedale Ln or the Regional Rite 71 will put you on the right track depending which direction you're coming from. The Inn itself is a great place and at the time of my visit all were welcome with a smile!

The White Caterthun Fort (By mynameisjoe)

Video by Kieran Baxter

The White Caterthun is one of the most spectacular iron age forts in Scotland, occupying a rounded summit overlooking Strathmore from the chain of hills that includes the Brown Caterthun to the NE. The fort consists of a massive dry-stone wall, with a well or cistern in the middle. The light-coloured stone wall gives the White Caterthun its name. The Brown Caterthun on the east, consists of a series of earthen embankments, hence the name Brown Caterthun.
The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular and well worth a visit. Small car park at the bottom which can take half a dozen cars and a short 15 minute walk to the top. Keep your eyes peeled for Peregrine Falcons, one took quite an interest in my Mini2 until I landed it!!!

Wolfclyde Bridge (By mollin)

Wolfclyde bridge is thought to be early 19th century. It has 2 wide, main arches, and 6 flood arches – 1 group of 4 + 1 group of 2. The bridge carries the A72 road.

To the north of the bridge you will find the piers of an old railway bridge. The bridge served the Symington, Biggar, and Peebles rail line from around 1860, and closed in the 1950’s.

Hazards: Apart from the main road, there are power lines near the south side of Wolfclyde Bridge. There are also more power lines to the north of the old rail bridge piers, but these are further away.

As usual, watch out for livestock & wildlife.

Parking: Free on roadside near Coulter Motte Hill – W3W: ///texted.confused.suits

Stayed in the converted barn on Garsdale Head Old Road. Nothing but beautiful countryside for miles. Settle railway in the distance is the only sign of buildings in the immediate area. The cottage was so remote and you feel and at one with the Yorkshire Dales; despite it's fantastic and remote location it has easy access (roads all good with no dodgy dirt tracks to negotiate) to so many places; villages, towns, waterfalls, castles and museums all sheathed in a beautiful landscape to walk and fly in... bliss.

There are some fantastic pubs to discover amongst the hills... hint: head up to the Tan Hill Inn 45 minutes from Richmond (North Yorkshire), less than 30 minutes from Hawes in Wensleydale and only 30 minutes from the A66 between Cumbria & County Durham.

The Old road is narrow but widens occasionally but in the week we stayed there I only saw 2 vehicles pass by. The Old road is situated between Cock Brow and Clough and runs virtually parallel with the A684.

These two particular strips are what remain of between seven and a dozen fields (reports vary) which were reserved for cultivation by lepers who lived in the village from the 14th until the 17th century when leprosy was eradicated from Britain. The Tythe Map of 1838 shows that seven strips were still in use, though the lepers were long gone.

There are a number of locations to fly from - there is some car parking close to the river at New Bridge, and the strip fields can be viewed from the car park in the town above the river.

Gosford House Longniddry Scotland (By jaybee)

One of the best Estates ive been on... the grounds are outstanding . grounds are free to enter. to viewing of the house you have to pay.

Gosford House, the seat of the Earls of Wemyss and March, is set in 5,000 acres of combined coast and parkland in East Lothian on the south side of the Firth of Forth and close to the celebrated golf courses of Muirfield, Gullane and Craigielaw.

The property is dominated by Gosford House, an imposing neo-classical mansion which was one of the last great architectural commissions of the celebrated Scots architect, Robert Adam. Constructed for the seventh Earl of Wemyss, the building was completed in 1800 – eight years after the architect’s death – and is recognised as an outstanding example of the later period of his work.

Inside, the building exceeds the expectations raised by its elegant exterior. The Marble Hall, in the south wing, is arguably the most arresting of its many fine features. It was completed in 1891 by William Young for the tenth Earl of Wemyss and rises to a height of three storeys, with a magnificent double staircase leading to a surrounding picture gallery. The elaborate fireplace, alabaster colonnades and ornate plasterwork reflect the strong Italianate taste of the tenth Earl, while the Palladian screen of Venetian windows are reminiscent of Adam’s original designs.

St Abbs Harbour (By jaybee)

St Abbs: Avengers Endgame Filming Location

Located on the east coast of Scotland north of Eyemouth on the Berwickshire coast, this fishing village was chosen to play the role of New Asgard, where they filmed the hilarious Thor scene (if you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about!).

They’ve even made a sign when you drive into the fishing village that reads ‘New Asgard’- just brilliant!

St Abb's Not far from scottish borders.St Abbs was originally called Coldingham Shore. Prior to any buildings the fishermen who worked their boats from the beach resided at Fisher's Brae in Coldingham. These fishermen had to carry their fishing gear one and a half miles down a path to where their fishing vessels were tied up. The path is now known as the Creel Path; creel is the local name for a lobster pot.

The first building in St Abbs was constructed in about the middle of the 18th century followed later by a row of five cottages. This first row of houses was constructed in a traditional Scottish style with a central fire and a wide chimney. The walls were constructed of "clat and clay," a framework of wood interlaced with straw and daubed with moist clay.

By 1832 it is recorded that the inhabitants of the Shore comprised 16 families who, with 20 others residing in Coldingham, made their living by fishing. In addition to these residents, 30 people proceeded annually to the north for the herring fishing, which provided employment for 14 boats from the village.

The village was renamed at the end of the 19th century by the then-laird, Andrew Usher, who played a major role in improving the fishing village and harbour.[1] Usher purchased the Northfield estate on the edge of the village, enlarging and finishing the building of a countryside manor by the coastal shore in 1892.[1] He considered the local public hall inadequate and subsequently funded a new village hall and school, which was constructed in 1887 and is now occupied by the St Abbs visitor centre.[1] Usher also gave funds for the building of the local church in 1892 and the extension of the outer harbour wall in 1890.[1]

In November 1907 the Member of Parliament (MP) for Berwickshire, Harold Tennant, announced that the Royal National Lifeboat Society had agreed to supply St Abbs with a lifeboat, and that the Board of Trade had also agreed to place life-saving apparatus at St Abbs as soon as possible.[2]
The RMS Mauretania during a speed trial off St Abbs, Scotland, 18 September 1907. The lighthouse and its buildings are still there and appear essentially the same.

On 5 September 1914, HMS Pathfinder was sunk off St Abbs Head by the German U-21, the first Royal Navy ship to be sunk by a U-boat.

TOAL: 51.742878, -2.670014

Wasn't planning this one, but it was on my return journey back south down the Wye Valley. A very pretty bridge over the River Wye.

Bigsweir Bridge is an 1827 road bridge crossing the River Wye, straddling the boundary between the parish of St. Briavels, Gloucestershire, England, and Llandogo, Monmouthshire, Wales.

The elegant cast-iron road bridge was built in 1827 as part of the new turnpike road constructed up the lower part of the Wye valley between Chepstow and Monmouth. The bridge connects the English and Welsh sides of the river, with an abandoned but recently restored toll house on the Welsh side. The bridge comprises a single arch of 50 metres (55 yd) , and was designed by Charles Hollis of London and cast at Merthyr Tydfil.

Symonds Yat Rock, Wye Valley (By clinkadink)

Parking: 51.837870, -2.635745
TOAL: 51.841040, -2.634554

If anyone gets the chance to pass by here, stop and visit. It is amazing. The views are like being in the Alps. I parked in a Pay & Display carpark, I think it was £3 for 2 hours. The walk from the carpark to the rock is about 20 minutes up an easy path. You pass a log cabin cafe half way up (or down) for refreshments. I had a coffee (black no sugar £2). You cross a foot bridge across the main road below and then you on the rock - with panoramic views 270 degrees over the Wye Valley and river. The photos don't do it justice.

Symonds Yat Rock is home to an Iron Age hillfort built around 2500 years ago. The area is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The remains of the ramparts can still be seen in the form of a series of banks and ditches.

More recently, Yat Rock and the Wye Valley are known as the birthplace of British tourism. They have been used as a travel destination since the 18th century after they were popularised by the Reverend William Gilpin, the pioneer of the ‘Picturesque’ movement. His writings influenced the popularity of English landscape painting and inspired the Romantic poets.

Symonds Yat Rock viewpoint is well known as one of the best places in the country to watch Peregrine Falcons. However, with a little patience, there are many other birds that you can seen here. Goshawks can be viewed in detail, Sparrowhawks are frequent and breed in the trees in the valley as do Buzzards which can be seen from above whilst soaring. Ospreys also often stop here in the spring and autumn migration. Tawny Owls are sometimes seen roosting and hooting males are occasionally heard during the day. Barn Owls, Ravens and Kestrels also usually nest nearby.

St Briavels Castle, Wye Valley (By clinkadink)

Parking & TOAL: 51.737865, -2.641342

It was a complete white out due to low cloud. I was hoping that Briavel would have been high enough for a cloud inversion, alas no. Too good to pass up the chance though, so grabbed a moody, misty shot of the small castle grounds.

Built in the early 12th century, St Briavel’s was an important royal castle on the frontier with Wales and the administrative and judicial centre of the Forest of Dean – a royal hunting ground where the game was protected and the king alone allowed to hunt.

Edward I added a fine twin-towered gatehouse to St Briavel's in 1292. During his reign the castle was a crossbow bolt factory, using local Forest of Dean iron to produce weapons for his campaigns against the Welsh and Scots. After the conquest of Wales the gatehouse became a debtor's prison, and the castle is now a youth hostel, set in wonderful walking country.

Parking: 51.671256, -2.685940
TOAL: 51.674619, -2.684185

The walk from the carpark to the peak took about an hour. There are 2 paths; an easier, wide and steady, but longer path ... and a 'strenuous path' (their words) but shorter. I chose the latter. It involved 365 ancient steps carved out of the hillside, buried deep in a dark, dank forest. Awesome. But I was panting a tad at the top. I returned down the 'easier path' which was the right move with my dodgy knees. It was -4.5c during the climb but 100% well worth it.

Wyndcliff Wood is a superb example of a lower Wye Valley gorge woodland with ancient hanging beech and yew as well as lime, ash and hazel coppice.

There is a waymarked walk (with 365 steps!) from the car park at Lower Wyndcliff to the famous Eagles Nest lookout which is one of the best viewpoints in the Wye Valley.

The viewpoint looks across the bend in the Wye to see the rocks of Wintours leap, the Severn bridges and estuary and, on a clear day, the Cotswold and Mendip hills.

Cliffs of Arbroath (By dansdrone)

This is tricky, be prepared not to fly depending on conditions and if you're using something other than a mini, the area for TOAL to comply with SSSI is not massive so people could be nearby. I was able to get there first thing in the morning in November, so nobody was around.

To fly at the cliffs but avoid the SSSI and/or hikers, note the small gap in the SSSI near the carpark. I set up at the end of that gap, flew through the gap out to open water. That was my passageway each time. I'm not sure if that was being overly cautious, but seemed like a good idea. I also did not overfly the cliffs at any point. With that being said, I had no issues.

Glen Shiel Waterfall and Bridge (By dansdrone)

Beautiful view of the River Shiel and stone bridge that I couldn't quite figure out the purpose of - doesn't seem to go anywhere of note. Easy to get more than 50 meters from car park and able to maintain that separation from road with no problem. November flight outside of the restricted hours for RAF Low Flying.

Kept drone flight low and very close given proximity to road, and only flown when no other cars were parked in the car park. A little ways back down the road, there is a trailhead for hikers but again keeping the drone low and very close made this a non-issue.

GREAT for shots where you have a foreground element (a small hill, or the bridge, or a tree) that the drone can move around/focus on, with a gorgeous background in the shot.

Cotter Force, Richmond (By D0c.Col)

The Falls and Cotterdale Beck.

Cotter Force is a small waterfall on Cotterdale Beck, a minor tributary of the River Ure, near the mouth of Cotterdale, a side dale in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, England. Cotterdale Beck has several other smaller falls in its course before joining the Ure, but Cotter Force is the largest. The force is not visible from the road, but it takes only a short walk to reach it. It comprises a series of six steps each its own small waterfall with the largest single drop being about 5 feet (1.5 m). The force is narrower at 13 feet (4 m) at the top widening to 43 feet (13 m) at the bottom.[4] A short path allows easy access from the A684 near Holme Heads Bridge approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Hawes. After the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust carried out an upgrade to its footpath, Cotter Force is now accessible to wheelchair users and less mobile visitors and a small layby is right next to a sign adjacent to the path from the road.

Be aware, that if you want to get close to the action there is a lot of small branches to negotiate!

Lower Quirang and Loch Langaig, Flodigarry, Skye (By AlbionDrones)

Another from the recent Skye trip, this time a windier day, so altitude somewhat restricted to thje sheltered lower slopes of the Quirang, a couple of miles further north than the main Quirang TOAL point...

The Trotternish Landslip is huge, it stretches for about 10 miles, and the Quirang is the most resent part of it, still moving and roads have to be repaired yearly.

A coulpe of parking spots on the road near Loch Langaig offer a short walk to the Loch, which affords reasonable views to the landscape, a bit more of a walk allows for more open vistas...

There is an SSSI for rock formations, so TOAL at your own risk, however if you dont crash into the rocks you shold be fine...

Purfleet Heritage & Military Centre (By Kirky)

Purfleet on Thames Essex, has some stunning views across the Thames towards London Canary Wharf & towards tilbury docks, when I attended it was very very windy but still lots of people out, public walking dogs, family walks & taking in the views with a stroll along the embankment, was quite busy given the weather was not great, can imagine it being much nicer in the better weather, spoke to a few people whilst I was there, all seemed very fascinated by the drone & was very friendly, if I’m ever in this area again I would like to go back, did not stay long due to the windy weather & the drone bouncing around in the wind like mad, being a 795 gram drone I can only imagine today a sun 250g drone would have been mayhem, so if you decide to visit with a smaller drone do check the weather first, I went specifically to photograph the 26 soldiers silhouettes but there is a military museum there at this location as in the title, easy parking & lots of open space, a very nice little place in all, do be mindful of public if & when flying as I’m sure it does get busier,

Lake 6 / Church Pool, Cotswold Water Park (By BudgieUK)

I was attending an event at the hotel, but it was a short walk to the Gateway Centre .... I took the signed footpath by the side of the centre, and TOAL was along the shore of the lake. I searched online, and looked at all the signs and notices I could find and there is no mention of drones.
This area is designated as a SSSI, but it was clear that there was no risk to breeding birds etc.
There is ample parking close by to the Gateway Centre.
Note: this is close to a couple of military bases, and DJI seem to think that this close to an imaginary NFZ, but there are no restrictions at this point

Wray Castle, Ambleside (By D0c.Col)

Wray Castle is a charming Grade II listed Victorian neo-gothic mansion located in the Lake District, Cumbria, and England. It's situated on the western shore of Lake Windermere, offering stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The castle, along with the adjacent church was built as a private residence in the 1840s for James Dawson, a retired Liverpool surgeon.

Despite its stronghold appearance it was never intended as a defensive fortification and therefore lacks many typical castle like characteristics. Instead, it served as a holiday home for the Dawson family. After James’ death in 1875 the estate was inherited by his fifteen year old nephew, Edward Preston Rawnsley. In 1877 Edward's cousin, Hardwicke Rawnsley, took up the appointment of vicar of Wray Church. To protect the countryside from damaging development, Hardwicke, acting on a notion conceived by John Ruskin, developed the idea of a National Trust that could buy and preserve places of natural beauty and historic interest for the nation.
In 1882, when Beatrix Potter was just 16 years old, her family rented Wray Castle for their summer holiday. This visit is said to have inspired Beatrix's love for the Lake District, and it marked the beginning of her deep affection for the region. She eventually settled in the Lake District and purchased Hill Top Farm in Near Sawrey. It is said that the landscapes and surroundings of the Lake District, including her memories of Wray Castle, greatly influenced her work as a renowned author and illustrator, creating beloved children's books such as "The Tale of Peter Rabbit.”
In 1929 Wray Castle, along with 64 acres of land, were given to the National Trust by Sir Noton and Lady Barclay, the owners at that time. Since then, the castle has been used for a variety of purposes, such as a youth hostel, and from 1931 it housed the offices of the Freshwater Biological Association. From 1958 to 1998 it became a training college for Merchant Navy radio officers and was known as RMS Wray Castle).

In 2011 the National Trust proposed to lease the property stripped of its furnishings, for use as a hotel, but instead opened it to the public during the visitor season that year. High visitor numbers meant that the property had clear potential to be developed as a visitor attraction. In 2014 the Trust applied for retrospective planning permission to change the use of the listed building to visitor attraction and today, the public can explore its rooms, enjoy the beautiful grounds, and even participate in various family-friendly activities. The castle has a relaxed atmosphere, making it a delightful destination for those looking to experience the charm of the Lake District.

There is plenty of parking within the grounds itself and a number of National Trust granted public paths follow the Windermere Shoreline and across the property. I was able to launch the DJI mini 3 Pro from one of the Public Paths close to the Windermere Shoreline but inside the National Trust Property boundary. The castle was closed, as it was out-of-season, and VLOS was maintained, on this occasion, with the assistance of a spotter. Although there were plenty of walkers taking in the scenery at the time, I had no interaction with any of them! I suspect it maybe a different story in-season so be aware!

Boston Stump (By pcaouolte)

St Botolph's Church is the Anglican parish church of Boston, Lincolnshire. It is referred to locally as Boston Stump or simply The Stump.

Construction of the church began in 1309 but the 266 feet (81m) tall tower was not begun until 1450 and completed between 1510 and 1520.

The tower can be seen for miles around; its prominence accentuated by the flat surrounding fenland countryside.

There is plenty of on-street parking nearby. TOAL from the Market Place which gets very busy during the day but tends to be quiet in the early morning. Market days are Wednesday & Saturday.

The Long Mynd, Shropshire (By clinkadink)

Parking: 52.543644, -2.814280
TOAL: 52.554282, -2.844413

A walk up the stunning Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd in Shropshire. The views are nothing short of spectacular. The base area is National Trust, but at the top is not, but it is SSSI, so be mindful of wildlife.

Covering as much as 2,000 hectares (4,942 acres) of heather-covered hills with stunning views of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Welsh hills, this is an important place for wildlife, geology and archaeology.

There are paths for walking, cycling and horse riding, you can even drive to the top of the hill to take in the views. In Carding Mill Valley there are excellent visitor facilities including a tea-room, toilets and car parking.

In Carding Mill Valley you can play in the stream, watch birds from the hide, pond dip and relax with a picnic; or you can simply use the Valley as your base for the day and head on up the hill for an adventure. You don't have to venture far out of the Valley to find your own piece of solitude on the Long Mynd.

The Long Mynd is an area of Common Land. It's cared for by a group of farmers, known as ‘commoners’, who graze sheep and ponies on the land. Learn about these 'Common Rights', which have been passed from generation to generation for hundreds of years. Discover how they have created a grazing pattern which has maintained this treasured upland heathland landscape and created a special ecology and habitat.

The photogenic Fairy Pools on Skye, within an SSSI for Fauna, but no FRZ and there was no signage prohibiting drones.

The walk is a steep one down - and steeper coming back up - and although states 20 minutes, I would allow at least 2 or 3 hrs for exlporing and flying the drone - watch out for people, as you can see on my video, it is popular, and you need to keep distance unless you are using a MINI.

We visited on a Thursday morning, about 1000am,. and it was busy already, car park and loos, reasonable parking charges, but no other facilities, so take a drink along with you - although in summer I believe there is a good coffee shop a little further along the road...

Whilst here you could always take shots of Trentham Lakes, or the canal, etc... parking is either in Trentham Lakes or you find somewhere nearby - for e.g. layby near the top end of the stadium and you can walk down the footpath that goes alomngside it.
