aerial photograph of site of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 in East Sussex England UK. The Anglo Saxons stood lined along the ridge line with the Normans attacking uphill from the right in the photograph. Battle Abbey at the top of the photograph was built on the orders of William The Conquer shortly after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Legend had it that the Abbey was built on the site of the battle and the Altar was built on the spot where King Harold fell. The lie of the land as in this photograph indicates the legend is plausible.

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.
