Wilton Windmill - Added to Wind Farms in South West

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

Land owner permission not required.

About 15 minutes from Marlborough in the car. Parking is in a lay-by in the country lane, adjacent to the windmill location. There is a gate which needs to be closed after you walk through. The windmill is about 100m from the gate on the right. Owned by Wiltshire Council, the operation and maintenance of the windmill relies on the visitors money to keep it going. There is a donation box on the top gate by the windmill.

Set high above the village of Wilton, in the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty, about 9 miles south east of Marlborough in Wiltshire, Wilton Windmill is the only working windmill in Wessex and still produces wholemeal, stone-ground flour.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 09/09/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
