Home / Wiltshire / Old Sarum 8

aerial photographs of Old Sarum Wiltshire England Great Britain. Originally an Iron age hill fort built around 400BC the site was occupied through the Roman period and by the Saxons during the dark ages where it was used to defend against Viking raids. A stone castle was built within the hillfort by the Normans shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Normans also constructed a Cathedral, the remains of which show clearly in the photograph. In the middle ages a new town grew up around the present Salisbury and Old Sarum fell into decline and ruin.

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
