Upnor Castle 2020 Cinematic Footage United Kingdom


For his 100th upload to AirVuz, top contributor oszibusz brings us this beautiful aerial view of a famous 16th century fortress in southern England.  Upnor Castle is located near the mouth of the River Medway in County Kent.  It was constructed early in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to defend the Royal Navy shipyard at Chatham (just upstream) from a possible attack by Spain.   Following the Raid on the Medway in 1667 during the Second Anglo Dutch War, the Upnor fortress was essentially abandoned in favor of newer downstream defenses.
