George Stephenson's Brussleton Incline - Added to Iconic Landscapes and Ancient Sites in North East

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

Land owner permission not required.

George Stephenson’s Brussleton Incline on the historic Stockton and Darlington Railway, officially opened on September 27, 1825. It played a crucial role in the coal industry hauling coal waggons and their locomotives uphill using double stationary engines at Brussleton. It connected the former Shildon Colliery to the port town of Stockton-on-Tees via Darlington.

Parking: free

Note: do NOT park on the road adjacent as per the photo, as it goes further up to the former Engine Masters House and others. You can walk up and see the engine masters house.
There is also a Georgian Bridge but the overhead section above the road is no longer there.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 23/06/2024. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
