aerial photographs of Great Witcombe Roman Villa Gloucestershire England UK. The Great Witcombe Romano-British Villa was built in the 250 AD and was occupied until the end of the Roman Occupation in the 5th Century. The Villa is unusual for the Roman period in that it is built into the hillside which has been terraced to accommodate it. There are between 400 and 1000 Romano-British Villas known and the majority were built by wealthy native Brits rather than Romans. This Villa was first discovered in 1818 and partially excavated shortly after. At that time the ruins were better preserved with walls still up to 2m high and extensive mosaics. Some of these features have been lost and to protect what remains, two small modern stone buildings have been erected over the Bath House.
Prints are available from just £50 and usage licences from just £195 - see my price list left and the shopping cart below the photo. 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 shown 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. Although these images are usually referred to as drone photos they are actally taken with aeroplanes and helicopters which is why I can take them from much higher up than drone photographers are allowed to fly. The shopping cart is just a few of the popular items, there are more options starting at just £50 on my prices page. With prints and wall products I can produce any size or style that the photo lab produces, just email for a quote. NB the shopping cart are for standard sizes, many pictures in my gallery are non standard such as panoramic or square. In these cases either the prints need to be made non standard or the image made to fit the print size. Obviously purchase of a print or wall product does not grant rights to make copies for which you also need to buy a licence Prints and Wall Products are made specially to order and therefore cannot be cancelled or refunded so please choose carefully.
