The Gardens seen from above
In preparation for our digs we usually try to take some survey photos beforehand with one of our drones, partly to see if there are any 'parch marks' and partly to use these images in our geographical information software once we start plotting test pits, trenches or finds.
For the first time in ages there was both sunshine and low winds today so, after obtaining permission from the Town Clerk and notifying the Police, I launched the drone from the grounds of the Bowling Club in the Public Gardens while there were no members of the public around. This is the view from above of the main part of the Gardens we are interested in:
