Black Rock nr Cromford - Added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Midlands

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

A natural beauty location. With a gritstone outcrop which was a popular climbing location in times past. A tricky site to fly due to heavy woodland surounding the outcrop and the at times heavy traffic of walkers due to the popularity of the High Peak trail walk that passes through the location. Picking less busy times is essential. The location is serviced by three smallish pay and display car parks that get full at peak times but usually fairly empty off peak. Land and car parks are owned by Derbyshire County Council and at time of writing I had uncovered no flight restrictions.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 04/09/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
