Newark Priory is a ruined priory on an island surrounded by the River Wey and its former leat (the Abbey Stream) near the boundary of the village (parish lands) of Ripley and Pyrford in Surrey, England. Established between 1189-1199, Newark Priory exists as ruins today and is a scheduled monument and a Grade I listed building. This building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.
There is a small, free car park on Newark Lane just to the south of the Priory before you get to the bridge. Walk from there, over the bridge and take a right down the footpath at the Wey Navigation. This footpath is under the control of the National Trust. About a quarter of a mile down the path, there's a lock.
I plonked myself down on a mooring post at the lock and filmed the priory from there. It's a popular footpath, lots of dog walkers... no one challenged me... maybe I was just lucky.
Note that is is nigh on impossible to maintain VLOS when flying from the lock, so take along a couple of observers like I did.
Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Newlands Corner is a very popular destination for walkers. As such, it's best to visit very early/late in the day. There's a large Car Park with pay meters, but if you go early/late enough, you can get away without paying.
From Newlands, you can fly south into the valley towards Albury.
Newlands is 564ft above sea level. Albury is at 200ft.
