Brocklesby mausoleum (By john768)

Village hall nearby in great Limber large car park and fields at the rear

James Wyatt, probably working at the time at Brocklesby Park, designed a mausoleum near Great Limber to commemorate Sophia Aufrere who died in 1786. The mausoleum stands on a mound which contained Anglo-Saxon burials. Wyatt took as his model the temples of Vesta at Tivoli and Rome. 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.
In April 2021 Mausoleum Woods permanently closed after historic monuments targeted by vandals.

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.

Statfold Barn Railway (By ensignvorik)

The Statfold Barn Railway is an extensive two-foot gauge private railway near Tamworth in Staffordshire.

Home to the old Burton to Ashby Tram and one of the largest collections of narrow gauge historic steam, diesel and electric locomotives.

The Railway only runs when events are scheduled.

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.

**WARNING ONE***
Inside Coventry Airport FRZ. You must obtain permission to fly here from Coventry Airport.

**WARNING TWO**
Private Land, you must obtain permission from the land owner to TOAL on site.

If you wish to get these ruins I would advise doing so when the site is closed. There is public path TOAL points from the nearby church. Obviously you will need to ensure your flight fits in with Coventry Airport.

Other than the ruins, there is not a whole lot here, so I would only visit here if you want to add it to your castles and or abandoned building collection.

Car park on beach road £3 for 6 hours or you can park free of charge at the Barmouth ferry end.

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.)

Dunkery Beacon (By DroneGeek)

Dunkery Beacon at the summit of Dunkery Hill is the highest point on Exmoor and in Somerset, England. It is also the highest point in southern England outside of Dartmoor.

The sandstone hill rises to 1,705 feet (520 m) and provides views over the surrounding moorland, the Bristol Channel and hills up to 86 miles (138 km) away. The site has been visited by humans since the Bronze Age, and contains several burial mounds in the form of cairns and bowl barrows. Sweetworthy on the lower slopes is the site of two Iron Age hill forts or enclosures and a deserted medieval settlement. The hill is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest and National nature reserve.

The land is now owned by NT, however to the south you can fly just outside of the NT boundary.

Blachford Viaduct (By DroneGeek)

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.

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.

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.

If intending to capture an event day plan ahead and call the venue for permission to fly within the race circuits 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.

KartTrak Cromer (By rustybarnet)

Email the track to get permission to fly. Staff are very accommodating - you just need to make sure that you’re taking off and landing from the car park as opposed to directly trackside.

The track is very close to Northrepps Aerodrome and the area is often used for military exercises so keep a special eye out for NOTAMS before flying.

Alvecote Priory (By M1TNT)

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.
Canal and train line run close by so some great shots to be taken here too

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"

Castlefield, Manchester (By kvetner)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Barbury Castle (By clinkadink)

The remnants of the 2,500 year old Iron Age castle. The mound is all that is left, but it is steeped in history.

The park lies about three miles south-west of Chiseldon. From the M4 Junction 15 follow the A346 towards Marlborough until you see signs for Chiseldon. Then follow signs for Barbury Castle.

The area is about a 10 minute walk from the free car park. There are no steps or styles but there is a swing gate. There are normally a few people here with their, walking their dogs. Bring decent boots as it is often muddy.

Trow Water Tower (By mikeplow)

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

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

Brill Windmill (By mikeplow)

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

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

The members are nice to drone pilots and friendly, so why not enjoy the short walk and keep it that way. Nice scenery on the walk too, rakegill beck drains down the concrete chute from the reservoir.

Not really a lake and one of the lesser known to tourists areas of the lake district. Built as a reservoir by damming rakegill beck in the 1880s. Its use as a water source stopped in 1975 so its now really just home to the afore mentioned fishing club.

Hayling Island Oyster Beds (By Shambleclown)

Decided to take a trip out to Hayling Island after seeing a post about flying over the Oyster Beds. You can park in the Billy Trail Car Park https://w3w.co/marathons.horns.playoffs then a 10min walk along the Hayling Billy Trail, when you get to https://w3w.co/marathons.horns.playoffs take a right and it walks along the water front. There are numerous areas on the edge of the water front with the public footpath running behind with clear areas to fly but also able to keep an eye out for walkers. Depending on the season, there might be birds nesting in the area.

Yellowcraigs Beach (By Natts)

Yellowcraigs is a popular beach about 40mins drive from Edinburgh. In the summer it can get very busy and would likely not be suitable for flying. I have been a few times off season and early evening and have had the beach to myself, especially to the west side where there are views of Fidra light house. The beach is bordered by sun woodland and scrub, high dunes to the east and lots of pleasant walks. There is an obvious car park at the end of the road and from memory it is around £1 (I was cycling last time).

I asked about permission at the Caravan Park but they didn’t know

Southbourne Beach (By Tidepool)

Beach flying with good parking other than the height of summer when the beach is very busy.
Double yellow lines de restricted from Oct to April from memory, so even better access.

Hengistbury Head to the East as seen the pic.

Bournemouth beach and town to the West. Views across to Studland and Sandbanks when clear.

Lots of cruise liners moored off through 2020.

Not a lot more flying to the East as Hengistbury Head is a BCP Council Nature Reserve with drone flying not allowed.

Cuningar Loop Woodland Park (By Drumsagard)

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

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

Wormwood Scrubs (By nathankw)

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

The area is confirmed in the council byelaws here:

https://bit.ly/2KIEn8p

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pomona Strand, Manchester (By kvetner)

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

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

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

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

Ivinghoe Beacon (By Mind_the_gap)

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

The Altmark Shipwreck (By stubbyd)

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

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

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

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

Morfa Beach / Margam Sands (By stubbyd)

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

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

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

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

Newark Priory (By Ned)

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

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

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

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