Abbots Pool - Added to Lakes and Reservoirs in South West

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission not required.

Abbots Pool is a popular walking area 2.5 miles west of Clifton Suspension Bridge.
There are plenty of photo areas above and along the pool, with a few small waterfalls leading off the main body of water.

Lots of tree cover and overhanging tree branches making almost a drone obstacle course.

Access via a small carpark off Manor road with a two minute walk to the pool.

Surrounding the pool is idyllic mature woodland containing some massive oak and beech trees. An abundance of wildlife can be found here and most of the area has been designated as a Local Nature Reserve. It was landscaped, using Pulhamite, an artificial type of rock of historic importance in the 1920s by the Wills family who owned the area until just after the Second World War.

Checking the information signs on prohibited activity, swimming and fishing is not allowed but no mention of Drones.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 27/01/2024. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
