Great place to stay, surrounded by fields and forests, and a great vantage point if you're brave enough to fly towards Looe Island

Dalnaglar Castle, Glen Shee (By AlbionDrones)

A stunning Baronial Castle glimpsed from the roadside.

Park up in the car park for the Clach na Coileach, and you can see the castle at about 500m away, behind some trees. Best approach would be to fly a little down the glen, then turn and fly up to the castle, with it being visible rather than being hidden by trees, but as can be seen I was chancing the mizzly weather, so wanted to keep the flight time to an absolute minimum...

Wakefield Cathedral (By richrab)

Wakefield Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England, is a co-equal Anglican cathedral with Bradford and Ripon Cathedrals, in the Diocese of Leeds and a seat of the Bishop of Leeds. Originally the parish church, it has Anglo Saxon origins and, after enlargement and rebuilding, has the tallest spire in Yorkshire. Its 247-foot (75 m) spire is the tallest structure in the City of Wakefield. The cathedral was designated a Grade I listed building on 14 July 1953.

In a pedestrian zone, there is a lane and small courtyard just behind, Marked as TOAL point.

There is a RED FRZ in place but upon looking it is Helicopters only.
This area is close to the Prison FRZ so don't fly west from here.

Spud Wood (By AlbionDrones)

Spud Woods in Lymm, park in the free car park, short walk over Grantham's Bridge - over the Bridegwater Canal - and then lots of options as to where to fly.

For a drone meet up turn right and follow the path to the meadow with the picnic bench and 2 other benches and its a nice open field to fly over alongside the woodland and canal - for the adventurous there are the woodland paths to fly through...

Walk straight ahead to the central clering, about 60m wide and about 1/4 mile long, bending left, sheltered between the trees..

Turn left and another much smaller meadow alongside the canal.

Easliy accessible with a shorter walk than Beacon Fell on what appears to be good solid ground.

A good few families walking, and dot walkers, but no-one had issue with the drones being flown, there are no 'no drone' signs, and nothing online I can find - owned by the Woodland Trust, who don't seem to have a drone policy on their website...

Danraven Cliffs (By 20Five)

Dunraven is a great place to visit with the family. Beach, ice cream, castle grounds, woods and cliffside walks.

Parking is currently £5 cash for all day parking. If the main car park is full, which it will be, the warden will guide you to the overflow field which has plenty of spaces.

Wikipedia:
The cliffs are mostly formed of blue lias, a sequence of carboniferous limestone layers from the Triassic period, folded and tilted in places but otherwise level, while Witches Point is composed of Sutton Stone, a lighter-colored limestone which overlays the blue lias and represents an unconformity, with a gap between the two strata of around 150 million years.

Heights of Abraham Matlock (By Woody305)

The Heights of Abraham is a tourist attraction in Derbyshire.

It consists of a hilltop park on top of Masson Hill, accessed from the village by the Heights of Abraham cable car. The heights are named after a supposed resemblance to the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Heights of Abraham, in Quebec, Canada, where James Wolfe died in battle.

Amongst the attractions in the park, which has been open since Victorian times, are cavern and mine tours. There are also views of the dramatic scenery of the valley of the River Derwent. The cable car was opened in 1984 to provide easier access.

The Heights of Abraham are listed as grade II in the register of historic parks and gardens of special historic interest in England.
