Birdlip and Stroud
- Travel North up A417 from Cirencester. Follow the "Scenic Route" for "Birdlip & Stroud". Left turning and 1st on right is a parking place with a view. This is good after dark dogging.

- Aust, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, New Site. A must for all serious doggers. Close to the old Severn Bridge and services. Come off the Motorway and follow the signs to Aust Village. Turn left into Aust Village, and carry on through the village. Go past the Boars Head pub. The road is a dead end and is not used, it is also away from houses. Busy most nights after 10pm
- Clifton Downs near the centre of Bristol is a good (late night only) dogging location. Ladies mile is the main road for it and "sea walls" is popular with gays cruising. Follow signs for Bristol Zoo. "The Downs" is the large park/common adjacent to it.

- Crickley Hill is now closed by metal barrier, this only leaves Birdlip Main View point at night which has been spoilt by "Chavs".
- Crickley Hill Country Park, Directions are as per Birdlip but continue on the A417 to the Air Balloon (Pub) roundabout, take the 2nd exit, sign posted Leckhampton, and Crickley Hill is approx 100 yards on the left. A large car park and one smaller more intimate car park and several really intimate spots. Good for people that meet at Birdlip and then want more privacy.
