Portishead Marina, Portishead, Bristol (By Barry7)

At time of flight (early morning) no activity at marina so no permission needed. If you wanted to fly during busy times then I believe asking Harbour Master would be appropriate . Plenty of parking on nearby roads, coffee shops and pub on site, nice pastries from 1 shop. Coastal scenery just along shoreline within 200 yards . Lifeboat station also here.

Green Bridge, Chatelherault Country Park, Hamilton, South Lanarkshire (By Drumsagard)

The Green Bridge is a wooden footbridge across the River Avon within Chatelherault Country Park between Hamilton and Larkhall in South Lanarkshire. It is part of a walking route though the park but can also be accessed via a single track road from the B7078 near Larkhall. The single track road ends at a gate at another bridge 260m up river from the Green Bridge where there are room for a few cars. There are also some good TOAL's near this bridge.

Church Shoreham Kent (By londonpilot)

I was planning to fly 2 years ago but because of the pandemic and finally also the tower in scaffolding it never happened till last week. No hassles with local visitors, great (too) sunny day. Shoreham is nice during the weekdays, weekends can be a bit busy. Has a few nice pubs and the aircraft museum is a must (also nice sandwiches), http://www.shoreham-aircraft-museum.co.uk/
