St Peter's Church - Added to Historic Buildings in East Midlands

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

Land owner permission not required.

A family church
This thirteenth-century estate church in Deene Park is the church of the Brudenell family, who bought Deene Park in 1514 and have lived there ever since. It contains many monuments to Brudenells, including one to James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, who led the Charge of the Light Brigade. In 1868 the widow of James Brudenell commissioned T H Wyatt to rebuild much of the church.

There is a splendid tomb of the 7th Earl and his wife in the South Chapel. The church is a large building constructed using local stone and Collyweston slates, with a tall west tower and broach spire which probably date from the thirteenth century or earlier. Inside, the nave and aisles are austere but the chancel was sumptuously furnished and decorated by G F Bodley in 1890

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 18/08/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
