Tomboys idea of A-Z looks good to me.

Ha, I read this and thought, well that must be easy to answer. A quick google proved me wrong. The Irish sea connects at the south to St Georges Channel which borders the Celtic Sea. It looks like the Celtic sea is offically part of the Atlantic ocean, whose limit in Devon is Hartland Point, between Bideford and Bude. Looking on a map its where you would get the best view of Lundy. (thumbs)
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Think I could do all in North Devon with more than one letter satisfied in a single picture in some cases, but I need some ABR stickers!

You tread on the heels of many, till you come where the ways divide.

And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan, Yet you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on....

....Bid good-bye to sweetheart, bid goodbye to friend, The Lone Trail, the Lone Trail, follow to the end.

Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;

Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"

Ha ha, you beat me to it Bren but I just check Wikipedia entry; according to the International Hydrographics Organisation it is, "is bounded on the west by North and South America. It connects to the Arctic Ocean through the Denmark Strait, Greenland Sea, Norwegian Sea and Barents Sea. To the east, the boundaries of the ocean proper are Europe: the Strait of Gibraltar (where it connects with the Mediterranean Sea–one of its marginal seas–and, in turn, the Black Sea, both of which also touch upon Asia) and Africa."

From their 2002 revised map* it looks like this includes both the Irish and North Seas and that bit inside the Hebrides, so any of Britain's coastlines will do!

* that map also seems to include the Mediterainia and Black Seas, which I wouldn't think could be the case - so as ever my maxim applies - Maps! Lie! (thumbs)

Just spotted this challenge and realised I can get the following just on the ride home tonight (with some slight detours)

U University (Northampton)
R Race Track (Northampton International Raceway - Britain's oldest stock car track)
S Stadium (MK Dons)
W Wind Turbine (Near Quinton)
F Forest (Salcey Forest)
P Public House (Several)
H Haunted House (Abandoned Building) – Just round the corner from home
N Night Time (it’ll be dark when I get home)

Although I don’t have an ABR sticker on the bike I do have a couple at home!

I only managed two tonight, I didn't reckon with the precursor of Storm Doris!

Not ideal trying to take photos on my phone in the driving rain!

It's a shame most people are choosing not to display the sticker, it's not a big ask.
