Kendal Castle circa 1200AD (By MTLakes)

The Castle, built in the 1200’s still shows a great moat all the way around the mount. Some great FPV possibilities. (Safe flying obviously)
Lots of paths up to & around the castle that can get a little boggy when wet.
The area can also become busy so be very aware of the general public & picking your time of day is key.

Land owner permission not required.

Parlick (By MartG1960)

Great views across the county from up here - if flying from the bottom of the hill don't forget to add the height of the hill to your max altitude setting.
As you'll see it lies on the fringe of an amber area, which is a local gliding club, and is frequently used as a launch area by paragliders too, thanks to it's favourable updraughts, so take care to check for both gliding and paraglider activity before flying.
Park on the road at the foot of the hill

Beacon Fell (By MartG1960)

Country park with great views all round, and many wooded paths to fly along.
Be mindful of the nearby glider airfield ( shown in amber on the map ) though in my experience the gliders mainly stay to the North East of the park.
Ample car parking at several locations throughout the park
