Only 200 per night for double room. Seen on way again towards St David's.

revisit for the highpoint. a friend living locally says the castle has been rebuilt in which case the flagstaff will be new and the bolt likely gone

Marked this as good, but with 2 flagpoles how would the surveyors know which one to sight onto? Either way we assume the correct staff is there so that element of the trig is extant. As for the bolt, no access attempted. Fine building.

What a beautiful castle. Later in the day I overheard someone say that 6 million pounds had been spent on the renovation. http://www.rochcastle.com/ wow looks lovely :-)

Castle seen from A487 whilst passing, with two flags fluttering in the stiff wind.

Two flagstaffs so the question is which is it and is it original? Much restoration and modernisation has been done - but the whole is magnificent. Now private house and access beyond the gate was not possible.

2 flagstaffs, don't know which is the IS, maybe the one with the Welsh flag? No attempt on bolt, nor on natural highpoint which is a P30 but looks technical - and rather private

SN02 T035 Flagstaff. Also a Bolt at this location. Built by Adam de Rope in second half of 12th century. In 2008 bought by the Retreats Group as a vacation home and corporate retreat. Visited once before when in a poor condition. No gates and overgrown grounds. Scrambled up the outcrop (as you do whilst exploring!).
