Moulden Hill Country Park added to Parks and Recreation in South West by clinkadink on 05/02/2021

Follow Thamedown Drive until the Taw Hill exit, Moulden Hill Country Park is the opposite side of the junction. Vehicles under 2m can access the free car park, there is normally plenty of space.

There are 2 turn styles off the car park. Take either one and walk to the right about 100 yards, following the path (under power lines). You cross through into Moulden Hill, a massive open grassy mound.

There are normally a few dog walkers but that is all.

River Eden (By CSB73)

You can park in a layby on a small country lane at the end of the footpath. The NT own a small woods between the footpath and the river but not the path itself. Can get a few walker in the area but the path is wide and has open fields to one side of it. Once you take off and fly over the trees you get views of the river and lovely Cumbrian countryside beyond.

Basing Common (By Christopher)

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.

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.
