Location: Gem Bridge Near Tavistock
Conditions: Light breeze
Gem bridge is part of Drake's Trail which in West Devon is a 21 mile cycling and walking route linking Tavistock with Plymouth.
Gem Bridge stands in the valley where Brunel's original viaduct was built in 1859 as part of the Plymouth to Tavistock to Launceston railway, but the viaduct was demolished in the 1960s. Gem Bridge is 200-metres long and 24 metres high, or the equivalent height of five double-decker buses stacked on top of each other. It looks across to Dartmoor to the east and Sticklepath Woods to the west.
This flight was all done LOS, I had a great time and a brilliant walk to the site, I used to play in these woods when I was younger. The video is a bit shakey still due to a bent motor shaft.
