I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:
Land owner permission requirements unknown.
Thelwall Viaduct is a major bridge of the M6 across the Manchester Ship Canal adjacent to two discontiguous segments of a SSSI (Woolston Eyes).
Access is via a footpath from Thelwall.
The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 29/06/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
You are probably very close to where my BIL lives as he’s the vicar in Thelwall.
Put in a good word for me when I want to shoot the church.
They had a competition a few years back for a photo of the church, and as we were staying I put my drone up - as I had permission I wasn’t worried about nosey neighbours or the like, but would have been better if I had crossed the road (so to speak) with the drone.
I’ve flown here too @Dorje
Very very muddy when I ventured up there the other week, not ideal for a bicycle
Anywhere for a group of 5-10 to meet up there @Andy_B mate?
Should be fine around the area where I flew from in terms of room to TAOL, parking might be the problem.
I cycled all the way up from Thelwall along the footpath, it was maybe a mile and a bit long?
There is a public footpath running from Warrington Road that runs parallel with the viaduct which I think you can walk up, but theres not much room for parking from there.
I used to meet up with a few flyers in Lymm, at Sowbrook playing fields, in case you were after somewhere bigger, plenty of parking, and more open, and you get the viaduct in the distance.
