Where to fly your drone

Halnaker Windmill added to Historic Buildings in South East by BrianB on 26/07/2019

Halnaker Windmill is accessed up a long track which is also a public footpath. There is a small parking area on the A285 at the junction with Dredge Lane. As you reach the Windmill you will see that the piece of land it is on is own by West Sussex County Council. I used the wide public footpath / track on the approach to take off an land ( just out of shot bottom right) as it gives a good view up and down the path and is far enough away from the Windmill not to breach the drone code. Just a note that this is just outside the Chichester/Goodwood FRZ. There are a lot of small aircraft that use the airfield so you need to be constantly aware or your airspace and the limits of where you can fly.

HOLME MOSS (By mockingbird71)

On the A6024 between the woodhead reservoir and the highest part of yorkshire holme moss. there is at least 2 pull in parking areas you can fly the whole valley just what you see and nobody will bother you. there is a radio repeater station at the top of home moss and for obvious reasons should be steared clear of. This area has to be flown when there is little to no wind as the wind is like a gale in this area when its blowing.

St Hubert's. Idsworth (By macspite)

Park in the rough layby at the bottom of the path leading to the church, be careful not to obstruct the gate. It was only when I planned this flight that I learnt the name of the Saxon church, I've always known it as "The Little Church on the Prairie". It is 30 years short of a thousand years old and is fairly plain inside although it once would have had paintings on all four walls - there is a fragment of a preserved painting on the north wall. The church is still an active place of worship.A footpath runs alongside and it seems to be popular with walkers. The main London to Portsmouth railway line runs along the valley floor, a good place to see 8 and 12 coach trains every half hour or so, interspersed with local services
