This looks like a great site.
Will make a nice change from Richmond Park which is the only place I’ve flown so far.

From here would we be allowed to fly over the Thames? That could be gorgeous!

Worth noting that this part of the Thames is London Heli-route H10: not prohibited to fly a drone, but the advice in section 2.4.4 of CAP722 applies. In theory helicopters using that route should not fly below 500-ft (as per this page section 10c), but worth keeping an eye out!

So I flew there on friday - what a great site!
Thanks so much for finding that byelaws document.

There’s a large flat area with no many people (apart from the occasional dog walker).
Spectacular views of the thames.

You are on the flight-path to heathrow so it’s a bit disconcerting to see planes descending right abnove- though of course you’re well out of the flight zone so there’s no danger. Didn’t see any helicopters along the river.

I’ll definitely be back there.
