Where to fly your drone

Portsmouth Harbour (The Hard) added to Coastal Scenery in South East by macspite on 19/08/2020

I visited this location early one Sundt morning (07:00) at a low tide and parked on the slipway itself. I doubt that it will be possible to fly from here once the world has woken up! It is in the coastal scenery category but could equally fit into several other slots - to the north are the buildings of Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard and the preserved ships - HMS Warrior, HMS Victory and HMS Driftwood - the Mary Rose. I was there to photograph the rilway station but the modern buildings of Gunwharf Quays and the 170 metre Spinnaker Tower are to the south with the Wightlink ferry and the buildings of Old Portsmouth and Spice Island further south and within VLOS - if your aircraft is big enough. I was there for over half an hour with no-one taking any notice. Be aware that there is a High Intensity Radio Transmission Area on the chart just to the north. I encountered no problems and suspect that the area tends to be active 9-5 weekdays. But make sure you have your home point established before flying out over the water!

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.
