Spud Wood - Added to Forests and Trees in North West

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Spud Woods in Lymm, park in the free car park, short walk over Grantham's Bridge - over the Bridegwater Canal - and then lots of options as to where to fly.

For a drone meet up turn right and follow the path to the meadow with the picnic bench and 2 other benches and its a nice open field to fly over alongside the woodland and canal - for the adventurous there are the woodland paths to fly through…

Walk straight ahead to the central clering, about 60m wide and about 1/4 mile long, bending left, sheltered between the trees…

Turn left and another much smaller meadow alongside the canal.

Easliy accessible with a shorter walk than Beacon Fell on what appears to be good solid ground.

A good few families walking, and dot walkers, but no-one had issue with the drones being flown, there are no 'no drone' signs, and nothing online I can find - owned by the Woodland Trust, who don't seem to have a drone policy on their website…

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 12/05/2024. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.

Perhaps another spot for a weekday evening meet up guys?
Happy to arrange one for anevening this or next week if it works for folks and weather is good enough?

Less of a walk-in than Carrington Moss, although more dog walkers…

It’s one place I’ve been meaning to go to give my dog a run around after quite a few work colleagues recommended it. Apparently it can get quite busy at weekends. As it’s just down the road from work, I’m happy enough to pop along one evening depending on day/time/weather.
