Swarkstone Bridge - Added to Bridges 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.

Swarkstone Bridge is a medieval bridge crossing the River Trent between the villages of Swarkestone and Stanton by Bridge, about 6 miles south of Derby. It is currently Grade I Listed and a scheduled monument.

Right next to the TOAL location on the map is a gate with a public footpath through a field. If you're lucky you should be able to park right next to it as long as no one else is there.

The field can sometimes have livestock in it, so you may only want to make this an on-route location rather than a primary destination to fly.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 18/04/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


looks a great place to fly. must go there some time. :grinning:

Finally got round to putting a video together of this one.

I’ve flown here too @firstadekit :grin:
