Old Hanson quarry on the edge of London. Perfect for practise flying. Even fenced off to keep the dog walkers at a safe distance!
There’s two sides - one looks like a field, the other is the gravel pit. Fly in the GP.
Strictly speaking land owner permission is needed but there is no one there. And nobody cares. Its a super safe spot.
Park up in Salcombe Road ( a layby in the woods) and walk down.
Thanks Weicon - just up the road from me too!
this is how I found out about it!
I managed to fly the quarry earlier this week with my mate - quite an interesting place. There’s lots of warning/danger signs, but we were easily able to find a launch zone adjacent to the quarry and got some good video and photos of the structures left behind to nature and graffiti artist. I have also never seen so many people walking their dogs in one place!
If you’ve got ten minutes @stubbyd please drop a pin on Drone Scene showing where people could park or take off from
The best place to park is the Waterford Heath Nature reserve car park on Vicarage Lane, then its a 10-15 minute walk north east to the Quarry. The quarry is well away from the nature reserve and does not show up on drone assist as a NFZ.
Sorry @stubbyd I’ve no idea where that came from
I did of course mean @Ted_Maul
theres a couple of muddy laybys on Salcombe Road, right by the footpath. Then its just a two minute walk down the hill
