Carsington Water - Added to Lakes and Reservoirs 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.

Some fantastic shots across the water are available here.


They have banned flying now . Shame , It was a great place .
You also get a few low flying light aircraft knocking about .
I have flown this place many times as i live close by .

There’s plenty of places nearby to take off from mate - in fact, you probably know more of them than I do :blush:

According to Severn Trent, its not band but is subject to the submission of an application form, 2 weeks prior to proposed flights providing full details of flight and insurance etc. I have just posted a reply I got from Severn Trent after a recent enquiry which contains their policy and the application form.

Hi all

What other places in this area would you recommend? I used to ride up to Carsington on the motorbike so was hoping to go that way and do some drone at the same time?

Hope everyone is doing well? Look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards, Dave

I’ve flown here too @PingSpike :grin:
