aerial photograph of Croom medieval cultivation terraces at Croome near Sledmere Yorkshire England UK. Associated with the adjacent disappeared medieval village of Croom, these medieval cultivation terraces are remarkably well preserved and show clearly from the air. They are a protected scheduled ancient monument under the protection of Historic England. Tax shows the village was prosperous in 1297 but the village was so badly hit by the black death in 1349 and was receiving tax releif in 1354. The last record of the village was in 1585.
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.
