St John The Evangelist Church, Sandbach Heath, Cheshire - Added to Places of Worship in North West

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

Land owner permission not required.

St John the Evangelist’s Church is in Sandbach Heath, about 1 mile (1.6 km) northeast of Sandbach, Cheshire

St John’s was built in 1861 and designed by George Gilbert Scott following a bequest of £5,000 (equivalent to £500,000 in 2021). The church is constructed in yellow stone from Mow Cop with red sandstone dressings, and has Westmorland slate roofs.

This location has a couple of possible parking and take off locations on church road that offer good vlos.

I originally parked at the following location but next time I visit I’ll grab the W3W to a slightly better parking location in a gateway 100 yards further up the road past the church on the right hand side (look for the public footpath marker next to fence)


The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 15/11/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
