Titchfield abbey Hampshire (By Kirky)

Titchfield abbey,
What a stunning place which I only stumbled upon when watching the weather & a viewer had posted a photo, up until then I had never heard of or seen this place & I'm so glad I made it there for a visit, such a peaceful place set in gorgeous surroundings, TOAL & park is so easy, I visited the abbey before I done my drone shots & spoke to a few locals in & around the abbey, I told them why I was there & mentioned drone / Ariel photography & was said no better place for it, very friendly indeed & I can think of nothing negative at all to say about this place what so ever, it is open to the public so I guess it can get busy at times so if & when flying do be mindful of that, & around the abbey has many places to TOAL no problems at all,
Gorgeous place & would visit again.
Added links as there’s lot of history on this place.

Stevenston Burn (By Kcscott)

Wooded area with a small burn running though it and a public dirt path to one the side of it.
Great area to practice flying with obstacles and confined spaces.

Can be accessed easily over the foot bridge behind Kerelaw Castle as well as from the old Kerelaw School site on the opposite side of the river to the Castle.

Footpath can be busy at times with dog walkers as well as Horse riders so caution should be used when flying round corners etc.

Kerelaw Castle (By Kcscott)

Old Castle Rusins with a large Park area on both sides and plenty of Room to Manoeuvre. The castle grounds itself is fenced off with no access due to structural safety concerns.
The castle does Boarder a housing estate so caution should be used when flying over or close to private residence.

Good place for Beginners.

History Of Kerelaw Castle:
Kerelaw Castle is an altered massive ruined 13th- or 14th-century tower and courtyard, which is much overgrown. The basement was vaulted, and the building was remodelled in the 16th or 17th century.
Kerelaw was a property of the Lockharts in 1191, but later passed to the Campbells of Loudoun. The castle was built by the Cunningham Earls of Glencairn (Maxwelton), but was apparently destroyed (or sacked anyway) in a feud in 1488, and then sacked by the Montgomerys of Eglinton in 1528. Eglinton Castle was burned in retaliation. William Cunningham, 9th Earl, was active as a Covenanter, and led an unsuccessful rebellion against Cromwell’s occupation in 1653. He was made Chancellor of Scotland, after the Restoration, from 1661 to 1664.
The property had been sold to the Boyds in 1609, then to the Cunninghams of Cunninghamhead, before going to the Hamiltons in the middle of the 17th century. The ruined castle was remodelled around 1830 as a garden folly for Kerelaw or Grange House, an 18th-century mansion, which has itself been demolished, when large Gothic windows were inserted.
