aerial photograph of Bramhall Hall Tudor manor house Stockport Cheshire. Bramhall Hall dates from the 14th century with 16th and 19th century alterations. The building replaced previous structures going back to the Saxon period when the area was owned by Anglo-Saxons named Brun and Hacun. Following the Norman Conquest the area was attacked as part of William the Conqueror's Harrying of the North when 75% of the English population was murdered by the Normans or starved due to William the Conqueror's scorched earth tactics . After the massacres were finished in AD 1070 what was left of Bramhall was given to a Norman Baron, Hamon de Massey. The Doomsday book records the manor of Bramhall as being worth 32 shillings before the Norman Conquest in AD 1066 and only 5 shillings when the doomsday book was written in AD 1086. The hall stands in the middle of Bramhall Park and is open to the public.
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.
