aerial photograph of Owthorpe deserted medieval village in Nottinghamshire England UK. Owthorpe was first mentioned in the written record in 1086 when the Doomsday book showed it to have 19 households. The Grade 1 listed Saint Margaret's Church appears in the record in 1299 and while some parts of the church date from this tie, much was rebuilt in the 17th century. The village had a Manor House Owthorpe Hall until t burned down in the early 19th Century.The Hall was home to John Hutchinson, a Parliamentarian officer during the civil war who signed the death warrant for Charles I.
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.
