Thanks for the kind compliments, John! Very Happy

Were you, FF? Did you? Have you been watching What's Eating Gilbert Grape? too?

Another MR classic. Beautiful area, if you ignore the immediate surroundings. So that's the River Clwyd... (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Clwyd)

Good choice of music too, Rich--were those bass crumhorns farting aways towards the end? An awesome sound! And was that FakeFreef being eaten by that bird of prey after he fell off the wall?

I once fancied this Welsh girl and borrowed a library book on how to speak Welsh. I don't remember getting very far--in either case.

Thanks as always, John! Rhuddlan Castle was epic and one I've been wanting to film for some time. That's the River Clwyd, you're correct. It took Edward 1 and his men, of about 1000 strong, "3 years" to straighten that river 700+ years ago with only picks and shovels. Amazing stuff for the time----Impressive stuff, Edward! Very Happy

I did a cool trick with the music as I mixed in two different modem day interpretations of the classic piece---the latter with crumhorns which worked, lol!

As John said, FF was getting eaten by that bird of prey when he fell off the castle turret. I thought I recognised him! lol!

Great engaging vid as always, Rich. What a setting--countryside in all directions! Cool interior too. Looking at its wiki page, I see the place was used during WWII to train Polish elite troops (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cichociemni).

Is this the Peter Phillips who wrote the music or did he just conduct it? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Phillips_(conductor) Brilliant piece, by the way.

Thanks John! I was not supposed to film on the first two floors of Audley House, as the items inside are not owned by English Heritage and are still owned by the family. It was hard, I was cheeky and I had to dodge many staff with eagle eyes---but I captured some footage on them floors! My mate who came with me was laughing saying we could work as a duo. I distract them asking questions and you quickly film! Laughing

Hey guys,

I returned from my trip to the Isle of Wight today, after being on the island for the last 5 days.

Anyway I just had to film the famous castle yesterday on the small island for MR! Laughing

Enjoy!

Nice, Rich. As always, I like the outdoor shots that put the building in question in its wider context. And a spot of Michael P is always great for glueing it all together.  

You can almost see that donkey thinking, "What the f*ck?"

Keep up the good work!

Thanks John! The Donkeys are well looked after and are only allowed to turn the wheel for 3 minutes a day, which is good, from show times of two slots being 11:30 and 14:30.

Back in medieval times they had to do it for 15 hours a day!

Doesn't bear thinking about, does it?

Great to hear they get better treatment now.

Welcome back, sir.

What a great place this is. It's amazing that one building has survived so well and the rest is just the outline. Looking at Wikipedia, I was amused to see that in 1086 the abbey paid a tax of 6,000 eels a year caught from the local rivers and marshes.

Old Josquin never sounded so good. Kudos, Rich--another great atmospheric video.  

Unless I'm much mistaken, I think we passed quite close to here in the train from Paddington to Exeter last month.
