Letocetum Roman Baths added to Iconic Landscapes and Ancient Sites in West Midlands by ensignvorik on 20/11/2021

There is a small free car park just towards the end of Watling Street, if it's full use street parking, however park responsibly and do not obstruct junctions or driveways.

There is a public footpath that continues off Roman Walk where you can TOAL which is not on the National Trust/English Heritage site. You can also use the nearby church but check you won't be disturbing anyone.

As this is owned by National Trust and in stewardship of English Heritage it's a bit of a double whammy! I'd advise only flying when the museum is closed to avoid any NT/EH staff. When I flew there was a local busy body about who seemed to enjoy stopping and talking to everyone for what seemed an eternity. People do pop up from time to time to walk around. I used a Mini 2 and no one visiting the site seemed to even notice it. I think they assumed the props noise a nearby grass strimmer or something!

I parked on Ambleside Road. There is a small green space (ive dropped the pin on the green space) with public access for take of and landing. This is in the middle of a housing estate so sub 250g is a must if you're following the drone code.

King Afreds Tower, Bruton (By McSteamy2010)

King Alfreds Tower

King Alfred's Tower is a folly in Somerset, England, on the edge of the border with Wiltshire, on the Stourhead estate. The tower stands on Kingsettle Hill and belongs to the National Trust. This is National Trust so TOAL is not permitted within the towers grounds but can be done from nearby.

Parking on site is free and exploring the wooded grounds is must.
