Set of Rochester Castle at Dragon Studios
Set of Rochester Castle at Dragon Studios
While enjoying the view from ST0283 : Picnic table and viewpoint in Llantrisant Forest we were puzzled by the castle that appears in the centre of this telephoto shot. Having failed to spot it on any maps or aerial photographs I discovered that it is a fake made from wood and scaffolding. It's thoroughly convincing from this distance.
The castle has been constructed for the film "Ironclad" which is the first to be filmed at Dragon Studios ( SS9782 : Gate of Dragon Studios, Llanilid )
For proof of the origin of the fake 13th century castle, see the construction photos on this blog: LinkExternal link
