    Has anyone shot there with a model recently ? I drove past it the other day and it looks great as a location shot with a model, (decent not topless etc)
    You have to pay to get in, but wondered what they might say if you come in with gear and a model.

    Cheers

    It will depend on what English Heritage's rules are concerning photography within the grounds of the site. There is no mention of this on their website.

    Never been to Roche abbey, but they quizzed me heavily at Rivaulx Abbey when turning up with a 300D and tripod years ago.

    It's one for an advance phone call - save you blushes and on the day if you and your model get told to sod off

    you can freely wander around the outside of Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds - been there many times myself.

    I've been in Roche Abbey with the camera and tripod plenty of times without any fuss although I think they ask the obligatory question about using the images for comercial gain etc. Unsure about whether or not they'd allow a model style photoshoot in the grounds though - if it's not nude and fits within Health Safety guidelines and their rules of access around the ruins then I can't see why not...? After all, people do visit the site and have their photo taken...

    A word of warning here though about the car park at the bottom of the cobelled slope a few hundred yards from the ruins. The area has warning signs dotted about as it has been a target for vandals and thieves over the years who have preyed upon peoples vehicles after leaving them for a wander around the grounds. There is another car park close to Abbey house near the ruins for a smaller number of cars. I try to park there if going inside the grounds provided that the wooden double gates aren't locked at the entrance to the drive. There is also a hidden sliding gate at the top of the hill off the main road before the drive down the cobelled slope to the first car park. A sign there states that they close this at around 6pm which means that any late afternoon sunset shots in the summer might be difficult with the car parked up Smile

    We were going to film a photo location piece there for epz.tv but they wanted to charge us 100 for the privilege. I know someone who has shot there with a model and because he wasn't shooting for commercial gain, he was ok to proceed. Smile

    Take a 5D Mk II but no tripod and you'd probably get away with it! Wink
