All Saint's Church, Kemble added to Places of Worship in South West by clinkadink on 02/09/2022

Parking and TOAL next to the church on Church Lane.

NOTE: this is inside an FRZ. Permission to fly needs to be obtained from Cotswolds Airport ATC first.

In the year 682 Cedwalla, King of Wessex, gave a grant of land in Kemble to Aldhelm, the Abbot of Malmesbury. It is certain that a church was built about that date. Present records show that a stone building was erected consisting of a nave, south aisle, chancel and western tower between 1100 and 1250. The south porch was built by William de Collerne, Abbot of Malmesbury, in 1280. The tower dates back to about 1250, thespire to about 1480 and the font to 1350. In 1823 the church and spire were severely damaged by lightning during a storm on the 29th December and was not in use for a long time. A large part of the church was rebuilt in 1872-73 and the spire restored in 1964.

The church is in the early English style except for the south chapel. The north aisle was a new addition; otherwise the original stone was used. On the south east buttresses are four 13th century coffin lids with crosses, used to patch the tower. The early English south porch with an image niche above the doorway of keeled roll moulding is worthy of notice.

The south chapel, which is reputed to have been built from the stone of a church at Ewen, has a fine moulded trefoil sedila and piscine, a tomb recess of 1320, and three perpendicular windows. The organ and ease, dated 1788, is almost unique. Only two of its kind were ever built. It was given in memory of the late SJ.Phillips, and is in this chapel, which has been furnished with an altar and chairs by Mr W.S.Boycott in memory of members of his family.

The pulpit was installed at the 1872 restoration, and the very handsome lectern about 1900. The plain octagonal font on a modern base is 14th century. Note the Hanoverian Coat-of-Arms over the doorway.

The monuments of an effigy of a knight,1290, in Purbeck marble, and of Elizabeth Coxe, 1783, Ann Coxe,1790, and Charles Coxe,1808, are fine examples of the period.

The Church yard was closed at the end of the last century and contains some old vaults. The great Yew tree is generally considered to date from Anglo Saxon times: a more recent legend says that Roundheads tied their horses to it in the Civil War. It contains a new tree growing in the trunk of the old one, and experts have given assurance that the tree will live for many years.

Braemar, Highland Scotland (By AlbionDrones)

The small town/village of Braemar, bisected by the Vlune Water, and nestled in the Cairngorm.

Sdly it as extremely windy on ou visit, so I only managed a short flight, but the river is stunning, there are plenty of historic buildings, and being surrounded by woodland and mountains - with a Caastle in the distance it makes for a fine subject...

There are good car parking options, a few decent shops to look around and several TOAL options, marked on the map, feel free to ad other markers as you find them...

Dalnaglar Castle, Glen Shee (By AlbionDrones)

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...

Danraven Cliffs (By 20Five)

Dunraven is a great place to visit with the family. Beach, ice cream, castle grounds, woods and cliffside walks.

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.
