aerial photographs of Baggrave deserted medieval village ( DMV ) Leicestershire England UK. One of the clearest and best preserved deserted medieval villages, the line of the former main street is clearly visible in these aerial photographs. The layout of houses , tracks and out buildings all still show clearly and the village is surrounded by a well preserved system of ridge and furrow field patterns. At the southern end of the village is the outline of a moat which once contained the manor house. Poll Tax records show around 15 families living here, however by 1563 the village had become populated with only two families remaining. In the 16th century the manor house was replaced by a hall at the northern end of the former village.

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.
