Home / Durham / Barnard Castle 10

aerial photographs of Barnard Castle including both the town and the castle from which the town takes its name. The Grade I listed Barnard Castle was built at the end of the 11th century by Guy de Balliol. The castle was extended and improved throughout the medieval period and in 1216 held out against besieging Scottish forces. In the 15th century the castle was owned by Richard, Duke of Gloucester who was later crowned Richard III. The Castle was abandoned in the 17th century and the ruins are now in the care of English Heritage.

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.
