aerial photograph of West Burton DMV Deserted medieval village England UK. West Burton Deserted medieval village site is a Scheduled Monument (No.29915). The name Burton is derived from old English "burhtun" which means a fortified farm house and the village was included in the Doomsday book in 1086. Technically , although it is usually referred to as a deserted medieval village it does not fit the criteria as it was not deserted in the middle ages and was stil extant into the 18th century. The village was abandoned in the 19th century, probably following a change in teh course of the River Trent in 1797. The village Church was demolished in 1886.
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.
