Use of Drones on the Northumberland Coast

The use of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more commonly known, is not permitted on or over National Trust land as part of our byelaws without the necessary required qualifications and a licence granted by us. We are experiencing increasing issues with drones on our sites on the Northumberland Coast and we expect this to continue as the technology becomes more available. Below outlines in more detail why we do not allow drones to be flown at National Trust sites.
