A remote controlled flying drone equipped with a video camera is to be used to identify maintenance requirements of historic churches in Yorkshire, England. The Church of England’s dioceses of Sheffield and York are to take part in a pilot programme organised by the National Churches Trust. The scheme will be funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund – a grant-making body distributing funds from the UK’s National Lottery.
