..................I can't remember what that height was, but if it is
exceeded the rules have to be observed, and include things like
providing lights and notifying the CAA.

 I believe that the current CAA rules restrict the maximum height of
balloon flying to 200ft unless as Howard says, lights are fitted and the
CAA notified. Of course there is also a general height restriction on
antenna height in the UK to 50ft within 1/2 mile of the perimeter of an
airfield. ( Not sure if that is statute or nautical miles!)
