Drone field, sorry couldn’t resist that, seriously I’ve seen them flown in Longshaw and surrounding moorland, however you’ll not be welcome where stock is grazing.

I've seen someone flying one over Morehall reservoir near warncliffe side, and people fly model planes up on westwood park, so if they can fly model planes, I'd be surprised if drones are not allowed...

It does make it clear that you are not permitted to fly a drone on Longshaw Estate as suggested by an earlier poster.

Do you actually mean 'where is it safe . . .' rather than 'we are is it safe . . .'

If you take the trouble to read my post I said that I had seen them flown on the Longshaw Estate, where did I suggest that the O P should do so without requesting permission?

Did you actually mean to ask a question without one of these?

Yes, up in Lodge Moor behind The Sportsman pub is a licensed site for flying model airplanes, so I'd imagine you'd be OK flying drones there as well.
You'll get a nice view of Sheffield as well (if you're not familiar with that area).

Apparently you can fly them over Bramhall Lane but you have to be careful about all the hot air rising.

The Peak District National Park does not permit the flying of model aircraft (including drones) on land it owns; http://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/visiting/frequently-asked-questions/drones

Permission is required to fly drones in Sheffield parks; https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/pa...s-green-spaces
