aerial photograph of Warwick Castle , Warwickshire, England UK. The first fortification on the site was built in 914 AD by Alfred the Greats daughter Æthelflæd to defend against Danish raiding parties. William the Conqueror constrcted a wooden Motte and Bailey castle in 1068 just two years after the Norman invasion. This was replaced by King Henry II in the 12th century with a more permanent stone Castle. In 1264 the Castle was captured by Simon de Montford during the second Barons rebellion.The castle was altered and improved throughout the medieval period however by the time Elizabeth I visited the castle in 1566 it was in a very poor state of repair. The castle was refortified during the English Civil war and the defending Parliamentarian garrison successfully withstood a siege by attacking royalist forces. By the 17th century the castle had lost its military significance and was converted to a residential home.Today it is owned by a private company 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. 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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
