Wigan Locks - Added to Rivers and Canals in North West

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Park up at Rose Bridge School and go early or late in the day as it seems to get busy with walkers/runners.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 31.05.2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Wigan :slight_smile:

I enjoyed that apart from the bit where you flew inside the lock! Made me very nervous.

I’m fairly local so added to my list.

You could smell how nervous I was at the time! Went by there again on my bike this morning, such a nice place and surprisingly quite close to Wigan centre

I flew there this morning, parked on Belle Green Lane then walked along the footpath. There’s a cracking viewpoint from a ridge that the locals call Rabbit Rocks, just follow signs into Kirkless Nature Reserve.


I’ve flown here too @Dun_na_nGall :grin:



@Dun_na_nGall this video has been set to Private and no longer plays on Drone Scene.

Could you un-private it for us please?
