Rother Valley Country Park - Added to Parks and Recreation 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.

Plenty of on site parking.

Very large park spread across multiple lakes.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 08/08/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Thanks for adding this to the DroneScene map

Nice location been there a few times . :+1:

I’m a professional drone pilot and was asked to do a drone shoot for Bluebell Wood Hospice in the country park a few years ago. The park refused permission because I only had £5m of public liability and they wanted £10m.

Not sure if it is ok to fly recreationally here.

Thankfully hobbyists don’t have all the grief that comes with a commercial flight.

Not that it matters now anyway with all the changes to the regs a few weeks ago :slight_smile:

There are no airspace restrictions in that area. Provided you take off somewhere sensible you’ll be fine.
