Lake on Longstone Moor - Added to Lakes and Reservoirs in East Midlands

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

I parked at https://what3words.com/infinite.velocity.escapades.

You can fly from beside the dried-up lake, from where you park, or a nearby public footpath. However, note that the lake area has plenty of warning signs (quicksand).

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 14/07/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.

Some top-down photos of the lake bed here:

I believe this was a tailings lake for nearby lead mines.
