Newark Park added to National Trust in South West by clinkadink on 15/10/2022

Parking & TOAL: 51.639026, -2.321748

This is a National Trust site, as such, TOAL was performed outside the boundary.

A secluded country estate upon the Cotswold escarpment, providing garden strolls and woodland walks. Newark Park stands proud on top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking down into the Ozleworth valley and to the Mendips beyond. The Newark estate is situated in an unspoilt corner of Gloucestershire, with barely a sign of modern life visible in any direction.

The 'New Worke' was built in 1550 by Nicholas Poyntz, previously an influential English courtier to Henry VIII. The house, garden and estate would grow and develop over 350 years, followed by a short but grave period of decline, to then be lovingly restored by a Texan architect in the 1970s and 80s.

The architecture of Newark House reveals its intriguing history, with a quirky collection of furnishings and impressive views completing its homely feel.

The historical significance of the house is met by that of the garden and estate. It has been a deer park for Tudor hunting parties, the steep track made an impressive carriageway to visitors while the fishing lake and summer house provided a place for recreation and leisure. Now, the tiered garden is a place to gently explore and the paths through the valley and woodlands are popular walking routes. A place to connect to nature throughout the year, there are everchanging seasonal flowers such as snowdrops, aconites and daffodils, wildlife garlic, summer borders and autumn cyclamen.

A place of architectural intrigue, quaint gardens and sprawling parkland there is much to see and do at Newark.

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.
