    I recently discovered this in my study. I believe that now just anybody can use a tripod in a Royal Park. Total gridlock!

    But what does it say in the "CONDITIONS PRINTED OVERLEAF" ?

    It's the signature that intrigues me. I interpret it as, "Miss Erica" - ooooh, she sounds to be very strict.:eek:

    Photography in royal parks is still restricted for commercial use. and I believe tripods can be banned. you would need to read the notice at the gates to find out for individual parks.

    That permit is extremely open ended and could have been used by anyone with the agreement of RS Coombs.

    The Royal Parks and Other Open Spaces Regulations 1997 is the relevant legislation. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1997/1639/regulation/
    Acts in a Park for which written permission is required

    4. Unless the Secretary of State’s written permission has first been obtained, no person using a Park shall—

    (18) take photographs of still or moving subjects for the purpose of or in connection with a business, trade, profession or employment or any activity carried on by a body of persons whether corporate or unincorporate;

    (19) intentionally obstruct or otherwise interfere with free passage on any road, riding way or path;

    So in effect anybody can use a tripod provided it does not contravene 4 (19) above.
