Chatterley Whitfield Colliery Heritage Centre - Added to Historic Buildings in West Midlands

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Plenty of free parking on the access road. I flew from the industrial estate as it was closed during the lock-down. Under normal circumstances possibly fly from the top of the old spoil heap in the country park.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 15/05/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Thanks for adding to the map @northernlights53

I love old abandoned engineering stuff like this :clap:t2:

I went up there after seeing from the road 12 month ago but there was a security guard on the industrial estate so I didn’t bother lol nice shots there well done!! :+1:

The industrial estate is currently open & deserted if you want to go back!

Nice one I might just have to cheers northernlights53

If you do go, when you enter through the main gate head left up the grassy slope. Keep going up to the top then bear right - this will bring you to the fence right at the end of the building complex. Nice, flat, unobstructed area to fly from.
