A lovely Sunday morning prompted a flight of the Min3Pro. Not a breath of wind to disturb the drone.
I wonder if @DAFlys will recognise the locale.

Interesting top-down. Haven't seen these featuring the triangular shapes too often. No idea where it is located though.

It's an unusual construction, on a hill, in England

You could perhaps shelter from the wind, behind it. But that's not it's purpose.

If it's not English Heritage and as it's no cathedral I wouldn't know.

It's along the lines of a "guess where". But any non-Brit would be at a decided disadvantage.

It's a memorial, or monument, but not a war memorial.
Narrow it down to Yorkshire.
And accessible to me by sameday public transport

That should be enough for a sleuth like you

Now that David has sussed it, after a couple of hints, I'll post the POI video.
It's the Cholera Monument in Sheffield, Yorkshire.

Interesting read.  Sad about the cholera being so widespread and deadly.  After seeing this lateral view of the monument I can see how the topdown would line up.  Great job on this teaser Mr. B.

It caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when I was perusing maps of the area.
Sunday was the perfect opportunity - I had just 50 minutes in Sheffield between arriving by train, and the return bus. So It was a bit of a rush,

I came across this monument, quite by chance. It's unusual nature caught my interest.
A monument to those who died in a Cholera epidemic in the city (Sheffield) in 1832.

https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/par ... -monument-clay-wood

While I was there, I took a POI video of it which I'll post soon.
And, with you in mind, a skyline shot of the city centre.
I'll post that later too.

That's great. The area you live in has lots of personality and history. It's refreshing to see. Looking forward to the videos.
