Chesterton Windmill - Added to Iconic Landscapes and Ancient Sites 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.

My take off and landing spot was in the lay-by next to the front gate as the farmland that the Windmill is situated on has No Drone signs up, so respecting the land owners rights I took off and landed on the public road way next to their land.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 15/11/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Beautiful, Dean :star_struck: Just checked out the video too, really smooth flying :+1:


For anybody wanting to fly this location please note when I attended on the 7th of January 2022 the sails had been removed. No idea why possibly during the winter months to avoid damage in the high winds maybe who knows. But just to make you aware if you’re planning to fly the location.


Deffo photoshopped out mate. Not calling you a liar but you can see the blurred out sails.

I just assumed this was already on drone scene. Nice add.


Thanks :slightly_smiling_face: I thought the same… but checked this morning and it wasn’t lol
