Mayfield, Manchester - Added to Everything Else in North West

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

Land owner permission not required.

This is an urban location from which Manchester Piccadilly station, the old Mayfield Depot and the cityscape can be photographed.

My take-off-and-landing location was roadside on Rachel Street (M12 6HG). However, there are several back streets around here which are little used outside daylight hours.

Accessibility: straightforward. There are no parking restrictions.

Hazards: Highly urban location where you may be challenged during daylight hours; I was here after sunset. Pedestrians, cars and trains will be present nearby. Note this location is close to a red light district, so there could be other forms of unwelcome attention: it's a fairly scuzzy area after dark. I was here for over an hour and saw only one other person in that time (security guard for the Mayfield site).

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 27/05/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
