There is limited parking outside the front of the castle which is technically only open until sunset (caretaker can be a bit variable) but there is open common land between the castle and the church and some parking is available by the church. There is a footpath here that leads to the other entrance and also to a gate into the field where I fly from.
If you visit, be aware that a prison is fairly close by and the DJI app will throw up a warning but you can fly, just need to acknowledge you are responsible. I've never had an issue with any locals and as my image shows, some lads are playing footy in the grounds after closing but ddin't even bat an eyelid at me.
If you visit - give me a shout and I'll try and join you, and then perhaps share a pint in the Six Bells (also in shot) in the village afterwards.
Land owner permission not required.
