aerial photograph of Howden Minster, Howden Yorkshire England UK. A church has stood on this site since Saxon times although most of what we see of the Minster today dates from the 13th and 14th Centuries. Not being classed as a monastery meant the church escaped destruction during Henry VIII's dissolution f the monasteries but in 1548 it fell victim to Henry's Dissolution of Collegiate Churches and Chantries. Although not totally destroyed it was allowed to fall partially into ruin with the roof collapsing in 1696. The Nave continued to be used for church surfaces and has survived
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.
