Where to fly your drone

Church Fields, Hayling Island added to Everything Else in South East by macspite on 31/12/2019

You can park in the layby outside St Mary's Church or in the one outside the school on the opposite side of the road. Both school and the graveyard are marked sensitive on the dronescene map. As you walk through the churchyard you will notice a large yew tree which is one of the many claiming to be "one of the oldest in England." The field itself is boring but it is central to Hayling and from 400 feet the whole of the coastline can be appreciated. It's also a good place to test aircraft; not toofar from the road and the natives are,in the main, friendly. Be aware that there are low-level power lines running across the field to the electricity sub-station in the south-east corner.

Corby Bridge (Wetheral Viaduct) (By CSB73)

Corby Bridge was built between 1830 and 1834 and carries the Carlisle to Newcastle railway over the River Eden. It stands about 100ft above the river and also carries a footpath to connect the villages of Wetheral and Corby. You can park beside the road beneath the viaduct itself and follow a public footpath to the riverside. Be mindful of overhanging trees on take off then head out over the river for some great shots.
