Neath Castle NE Tower
Neath Castle NE Tower. The discovery of part of the medieval tower hidden beneath later 19th and 20th century in filling. The foundation of a north/south aligned wall of the NE drum tower possessed a form entirely different to that which has traditionally been suggested (see RCAHMW 2000b, 229). Rather than being simply apsidal in form, the northern range of the drum tower was apsidal towards its southern end and was squared off towards its northern side, which may indicate the presence of a garderobe. The dense point cloud generated over 15 million points with a mean RMS error of 0.006m. The Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) achieved was a great 0.301cm/pixel.
