Milk Hill, Wiltshire - Added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South West

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

Land owner permission not required.

Driving through Stanton St Bernard (near Devizes, Wiltshire), there is a small track leading to about 100m from the summit. The track is rough, but suitable for cars. You need to pay a toll via PayPal of £2.50, by scanning a QR code on the sign near the start.

Milk Hill is the highest point in Wiltshire and is part of the Pewsey Downs, a rolling set of chalk grassland hills between Devizes and Pewsey which are prominent in the landscape and almost invite the passer by to park up and take a stroll along the ridge. At just over 1,000 feet, they are high enough to offer fantastic views of the Pewsey Vale and beyond but low enough to make walking over them not too strenuous.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 04/09/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
