Inicio / Wiltshire / Old Wardour Castle 9

aerial photographs of Old Wardour Castle Wiltshire England UK.Built for Baron Lovell shortly after Richard II gave him a license to crenellate in 1392. The castle is the only hexagonal castle in England although a number of such designs were also built during the medieval period in France. During the English Civil war it was originally held by the Royalist but taken by the parliamentarians before being retaken again by the Royalists. The fighting left the Castle in ruins and after the end of the hostility the owners chose to build a new home and keep the old castle as a picturesque 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.
