Heights of Abraham Matlock - Added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Midlands

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

Land owner permission not required.

The Heights of Abraham is a tourist attraction in Derbyshire.

It consists of a hilltop park on top of Masson Hill, accessed from the village by the Heights of Abraham cable car. The heights are named after a supposed resemblance to the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Heights of Abraham, in Quebec, Canada, where James Wolfe died in battle.

Amongst the attractions in the park, which has been open since Victorian times, are cavern and mine tours. There are also views of the dramatic scenery of the valley of the River Derwent. The cable car was opened in 1984 to provide easier access.

The Heights of Abraham are listed as grade II in the register of historic parks and gardens of special historic interest in England.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 10/05/2024. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
