UK FO Inspection Reports

English Heritage published a report in 2003 that purported to identify and locate the various PoW Sites. Unfortunately, a number sites were omitted from this report, whilst others are listed as location not know. In addition, the locations of some of the sites is incorrect. Thus, additional verification is needed with regards to this sites location

In addition, this site is on the edge of the Drone MEZ for RAF Waddington. In flying my drone legally over the park the drone locked up and would only rise and climb. Please be aware of this if flying a DJI Mavic Pro 2 here. AND if flying a drone this close to an MEZ please be aware of the rules !
