TOAL was on the South East side of the Castle grounds, by Nedern Brook. I parked in the free car park situated at the entrance to the site, close to St Mary's Church.
An early Norman motte and bailey castle dating for the start of the 12th century. The almost intact stone walls and the circular keep on a low motte were added in the early 13th century and the gatehouse in the 14th century. It was restored as a Victorian family home in 1885, when the keep and gatehouse were restored. It is set within a wooded country park, managed by Monmouth County Council since 1963.
The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 03/01/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
Returned here again this morning. I was approached by one of the council wardens. He asked me for my public liability insurance information. When I told him it was <250g, he was happy and just asked if my Operator ID was in date. He seemed to know the rules and was happy for me to continue.
