aerial photographs of Quenby Hall Jacobean house Leicestershire England UK. The land was aquired by the Ashby family some time in the 13th Century.Poll Tax records of 1377 show 25 tax payers living in the viallge. By the 16th century the Ashbys had enclosed the area and removed the villages. While little remains of the village the medieval ridge and furrow ploughing is well preserved and surrounds the hall. The Hall itself was built in Jacobean Style between 1618 and 1636 by George Ashby who was also High Sheriff of Leicestershire. In more recent times Stilton Cheese was produced at the hall, although this business ceased in 2011 due to some Listeria Histeria. Nikolaus Pevsner in the Pevsner Architectural Guides describes the house as " the most important early-seventeenth century house in the county".

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.
