All Saints Church, Mappleton ERYC - Added to Places of Worship in Yorkshire and the Humber

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

It is thought that there has been a Church at Mappleton since 1086. All Saints was largely re-built in 1855-56. Inside can be viewed the tomb(s) of the Brough family who lived at nearby Rolston Hall.
Parking is available directly outside the church, or if you cross over the main Hornsea road, there is a council carpark by the slipway to the beach. Both get very busy in the summer and good weather.
TOAL from the public footpath outside (with a sub 250g aircraft, or from within the churchyard (with permission)
Mappleton beach itself is a great place to fly (Mappelton beach - Added to Coastal Scenery in Yorkshire and the Humber).
If you turn right at the bottom of the slipway and head south along the beach, you can find various fossils amongst the pebble (mainly Gryphaea arcuata (Devils toenails), ammonites & belemnites. If you are lucky, you may find fossilised coral or sea urchins).
WARNING: The fossil beach was also used as a bombing target for RAF Cowden … so if you see anything metallic, with fins … avoid and let the authorities know (Military clears 1,000 bombs off East Yorkshire beach - BBC News)

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 23/07/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
