aerial photograph of Holy Jesus Hospital and remains of an Augustinian Friary that was built in the 13th century in Newcastle upon Tyne England UK. Only the tower remains of the Augustinian Friary which was founded in 1290 and dissolved by Henry VIII in 1540. In 1681 the Holy Jesus Hospital was built partly on the site of the Friary and incorporated the tower. The Holy Jesus Hospital is Grade II listed and under the care of the National Trust. The building is one of the last two Newcastle buildings from the 17th century. Today it is surrounded by high rise buildings and structures, a far cry from the tranquillity of the Friary.
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.
