In order to comply with coronavirus social distancing guidelines, some new measures have been put into place.

A one way system is being introduced as the gateways are narrow and wouldn’t allow for a two metre gap to be created if visitors were allowed to enter and exit at the same time.

Entry will be through the main East Gate and the exit will be by the West Gate.

A maximum capacity level will also be set and when this is reached. people will be asked not to queue to get in so as not to create gatherings in the Castle Hill area.
