Victoria Bridge (Severn Valley Railway) - Added to Bridges in West Midlands

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Firstly a big shout out to @Photobird for the heads up about this great TOAL location.

It's in a huge field with public footpath going through, so plenty of room for capturing the heritage railway and the river severn. Either side of the bridge offers good views but more accessible space on the side where the marker is, and the tree's don't obstruct the railway too much.

Nearest parking is just after the Harbour Inn. Which puts you on the correct side of the river. It said it was £3 to park, but no one was there when we visited. I've no idea if the gate remains open all day so it could be park at your own risk. The play it safe option is to park in Upper Arly Car Park the other side of the pedestrian bridge (not accessible by vehicles) here it is £2 to park all day.

Only other thing to be aware of is Pound Green Microlights fly within the same space. If you're capturing trains you won't want to be getting too high anyway.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 08/05/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
