Wimbledon Common added to Parks and Recreation in London by paulrd on 15/03/2024

Wimbledon Common, located in Wimbledon, South West London, has a rich history dating back centuries. Originally part of the Manor of Wimbledon, it was used for various purposes over the years, including grazing land, agriculture, and hunting grounds for the local nobility.

In the 19th century, Wimbledon Common became a popular leisure destination, attracting visitors for picnics, walks, and horse riding. It was during this time that efforts were made to preserve the common from encroaching development.

Today, Wimbledon Common remains a beloved green space, offering recreational activities such as walking, running, cycling, and birdwatching. It is also home to various wildlife and plant species, contributing to its importance as a natural habitat within an urban environment.

It is a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” and it does get very busy during the summer. So care should ve taken not to disurb the natural wildlife and avoiding flight over groups of people. You should also avoid the helicopter routes

There is free parking on the roads around the common but you may have to drive around a while to find a space, especially at weekends.

Between Buttermere and Derwent Water, off the Honister Pass road is Newlands Pass, and at the highest point is the spectacular Moss Force waterfalls...

Good car parking at the side of the road, a short walk to the falls, or fly from the roadside, watch out for tourists - go early - and for the occasional tree racing into the gorge..

A great place for some chilled out FPVing...

Tenterden Town Station Kent (By grandad1950)

Tenterden Town station is the home of the Kent and East Sussex heritage steam railway. If you like steam trains the ride takes about 2 hours. I was there early so no risk of flying over uninvolved people but I guess it gets busy when the trains start at 10.00 a.m. The staff there were very friendly and helpful.
