Coate Water Park added to Lakes and Reservoirs in South West by clinkadink on 21/01/2023

Parking: 51.544715, -1.744509
TOAL: 51.542906, -1.744086

From the A419, turn off at the Great Western Hospital exit, and travel a mile towards Swindon. Just before the first roundabout, there's The Sun Inn on your left. It has a huge car park, beer garden, does great food and a decent pint. I parked in there (and had a refreshment).

There are many reasons why Coate Water remains one of Swindon’s most popular sites of interest, particularly for local residents. It is a serene place, perfect for walking the dogs or introducing the children to the geese. A 56 acre reservoir, originally built in the 1822 as a waterhead tank for the Wiltshire and West Berkshire canal, takes centre stage, ringed by a charming woodland walk lying adjacent to protected meadows of grasses and wildflowers. It’s a fine day out, a peaceful refuge for visitors and locals alike.

Salford Park (By soumyodeep)

A spectacular view of Gravelly Hill Interchange, also known as Spaghetti Junction. I went to the Salford Park at 4 PM to take this picture, but I realize that the drone position was very close to the bridge. For this I was not able to cover the whole junction in one picture. At the time of flying there were no one in the park near to my position. I have made the TOAL from inside the park. I have not seen any "No drone" sign inside the park. Be careful while flying from here, as few people come here for fishing. The drone sound can be a problem for fishing. As I have flown my mini 3 which is a very low noise drone. I have no hear the drone sound because of the traffic Noise over the flyover. I am unsure the drone-flying inside park at Birmingham, as there is a controversial document (Policy) around.

The Brickfields, Bath (By FirstDriver)

A large, open park in Bath, with good VLOS and no wires. Parking shouldn't be a problem in this area as it's out of town. There is a shop close by, and also a shopping street which might prove difficult to park. Extensive views of the South of the city.

Sherbrook Banks, Cannock Chase (By Steviegeek)

Part of Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, this site over looks Sherbrook Valley.
Martin @gunja99 and I flew here on a Friday afternoon, convenient park bench to sit on and met a few dog walkers, all very amicable and friendly. Also encountered a group of horse riders we spoke to them to establish their route and flew to avoid them, no problems, no upset horses.

Parked in Dry Pits Car Park which is really just a layby, space for about eight cars.
Walked a 100 yards east, and set up by the parkbench. The path is an excellent runway for landing planes and wings.

We suspect this site may be busy at the weekends
