Eton Wick Fields (By starharbour5)

There's a layby to pull over at so you can fly from there or walk into the field to fly. Dog walkers come here so pick your time of day carefully. Lovely view of windsor racecourse from here which is right next door.

Oakley Green (By starharbour5)

Park on side of the road at Down Pl and cross Windsor Rd and go through the gate across from Bray Studios... walk down the path until you're happy. There are a number of fields to fly in. Take off from your hand as its public right of way, although you're very unlikely to come across anyone here.

Poulter Country Park (By MrG)

Only 2 small car parks but close to a local train station. The nearby airfield is far enough away not to cause an issue if you stay away from it. Doesn't tend to get very busy especially in the evenings. Good views over towards Lincolnshire.
