The Racton Ruin, Racton, West Sussex added to Historic Buildings in South East by macspite on 18/09/2020

The Racton Ruin is an 18th C monument on a hill above the Hamlet of Racton. You can fly inside and up the shaft, especially if you turn collision avoidance off when you want to get the aircraft out again. Also it's best to set video to record if you want interior shots! Still, I intend to return ... Park in the triangle of land at the base of Monument Lane. Make sure you leave space for agricultural vehicles to pass through the gate as the land is actively farmed. The lane is a restricted byway, closed to motorised vehicles except for farm access. You may encounter walkers, horse riders or mountain bikers who see the lane's gradient as a speed challenge. The lane is in fairly good repair having once been tarmac. Good shoes are still recommended as, hen you have walked the 500 metres uphill, the tower is on the left in woodland and undergrowth. Please respect the ru as, although not fenced off, it is still private property for which the owner is trying to get planning permission to turn it into a home. It is also a Grade II listed building. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racton_Monument

Allonby / Beckfoot beach (By Scuba0576)

Crown Property so permission not needed. Plenty of pull-ins along the coast road. Beaches are sparsely populated but just be aware of Dog walkers etc. Scenery is stunning and massive skies. Can get quite windy so you have to choose your flight days care4fully.

Slemish (By TheFatController)

Just outside Ballymena, near the village of Broughshane, Slemish has a free car park with a small information centre & toilets (which are temporarily closed due to covid). There are great views from the top even without a drone. It is a very exposed mountain and can often be too wet or windy to fly, which is when your backup (phone?) camera comes in handy.
