Morecambe Beach added to Beaches and Seaside Resorts in North West by Doodler on 31/08/2020

Plenty of parking on the promenade and access via 2 slipways. Check tides before travelling, it's only an hour or two either side of low tide that you can go 150mtr out from the promenade. There's a natural shallow pool, go to the right of it where it's stoney and you'll find a fairly dry route to it. It's become my home location, walking distance from the house. Used Dronelink to put together the fisheye shot, didn't realise there was a massive fossil underneath me.

Cleveleys Ogre (By MartG1960)

The Ogre is one of a series of artworks and features that animate the Mythic Coast story trail along Cleveleys promenade in Lancashire. He was hand carved from a single fifteen ton block of limestone by the stonemason Adrian Wright and installed below the tide line on Cleveleys beach.
Check tide times before heading to see him, as he can be completely submerged at high tide.

Church In The Sea (By DavyAerial)

Church in the sea on Anglesey. A very strange place for a church on a tiny island not much bigger than the church itself. Quite easy to find, but limited parking as its down a farm lane once off the main roads. Different view depending on whether the tide is in or out. Also right next door to Anglesey race circuit which is also worth a visit for car and bike fans. Its also where they film a lot of '5th Gear' track action amongst other things.

South Stack Lighthouse - Anglesey (By DavyAerial)

South Stack Lighthouse, Holyhead North Wales. A famous lighthouse right on the far tip of Anglesey. Easy to find and park up in the pay and display car park. You can walk around the area for free but you have to pay if you want to visit the lighthouse. Nice cafe and area to enjoy your visit there. Can be very windy here so make sure you pick a calm day if you're wanting to fly.

Porth Wen Brickworks (By DavyAerial)

A great site of an old brickworks. Old buildings and great beaches. Tip of Anglesey, North Wales. Not easy to park as its on an old single lane road but parking can be found. There is debate on the island if its private or not, but the landowner does nothing to stop people visiting and its open to walk to without crossing fences etc. Its a very popular area in the summer but its a bit of a secret too, mainly used by locals. Well worth a visit and if everyone leaves it how they find it I cant see visits stopping anytime soon.

Dolbadarn Castle - Llanberis (By DavyAerial)

A great place for flying and a day out at the lake in Llanberis, North Wales. Parking is easy as there is a small area at the entrance to where the castle is. It's easy to find also. Head into Llanberis and before you enter the town it is on the right when you come out of the 40 zone. Great views of the castle, two lakes and the Snowdonia Mountain range. It is also down the road from the train that takes you up Snowdon.
