This is a useful spot for some good cityscape photography, with Newcastle Central Station, the castle, the Tyne bridges, and the Sage Gateshead all within filming range, while keeping a well-lit small drone well within VLOS range.
There are 2 DJI geo-zones nearby: St. James Park, and HMS Caliope (riverside).
TOAL – W3W: ///feared.crash.horses - there is limited free parking nearby but it’s probably easier to use public transport to the station and walk from there.
The TOAL point is between 2 operational rail lines, as well as being close to Newcastle castle, the high-level bridge, a pub, a hotel, Moot Hall (law courts), and a car park, so be aware of ground hazards.
To make life more interesting, also watch out for seagulls, which seem to be magnetically attracted to small drones with flashing lights…
