Portobello Tower Wolverhampton - Added to Historic Buildings in West Midlands

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

The Portobello Tower is a hexagonal, embattled tower built to commemorate Admiral Vernon’s capture of Portobello in 1739. It was perhaps designed by Rochard Trubshaw of Little Haywood and built between 1739 and 1765.

Not easily accessible. Good walking boots required especially if it’s been raining recently. Either park at Essington Fruit Farm and take the dirt track road by foot over the M54 bridge to enter the parkland. Or you can try parking at Hilton Hall which is now used as business offices, more likely to get questioned by security however.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 23/07/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
