Astley Green Colliery - Added to Historic Buildings in North West

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

I parked just off Lower Green Lane and followed a footpath through Whitehead Hall Meadow. A network of footpaths east of the site has several suitable take-off locations. Access via the Bridgewater Canal towpath should also be possible.

Beware dog walkers and dogs, and note Astley Green housing may be a congested area. Particularly note the nearby Barton City Airport FRZ - low-flying aircraft may stray outside the FRZ.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 26/07/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Thank you @kvetner for adding to DS, looks an excellent spot
