Wakefield Cathedral - Added to Places of Worship in Yorkshire and the Humber

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

Land owner permission not required.

Wakefield Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England, is a co-equal Anglican cathedral with Bradford and Ripon Cathedrals, in the Diocese of Leeds and a seat of the Bishop of Leeds. Originally the parish church, it has Anglo Saxon origins and, after enlargement and rebuilding, has the tallest spire in Yorkshire. Its 247-foot (75 m) spire is the tallest structure in the City of Wakefield. The cathedral was designated a Grade I listed building on 14 July 1953.

In a pedestrian zone, there is a lane and small courtyard just behind, Marked as TOAL point.

There is a RED FRZ in place but upon looking it is Helicopters only.
This area is close to the Prison FRZ so don’t fly west from here.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 15/05/2024. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


See post on " Peregrine Falcon - Wakefield Cathedral - Where NOT to fly your Drone!"

I will go back when they have reared junior to complete my photos.

Quick edit - Drone scene does not like portrait photos, seems to perform a stretch fill and distort the original ratio.

Here is the pic.


Hmmm… we built support in for vertical images a few versions ago, and your current vertical image looks fine: Where can I fly my drone in the UK? - Wakefield Cathedral - Places of Worship in Yorkshire and the Humber

I’ll DM you to discuss, rather than take this thread off topic :smiley:
