aerial photograph of Ripley Castle Yorkshire England UK. The Castle has been a family home since the 14th Century. The house has been altered through the ages with a gate house dating to the 15th Century and the tower from the 16th century. The property was considerably altered and added to in 1783-6 with architecture by William Belwood. The ornamental lakes were built around 1843 for Sir William Amcotts Ingilby. In 1605 the owner, Sir William Ingleby, was involved with the Gunpowder plot , allowing the plotters to stay at the castle, for which he was later tried but aquitted. His successor was a Royalist during the English Civil War and following the defeat at Marston Moor hid in the priest hole in the castle while Oliver Cromwell stayed here. Today the property is Grade I listed and a scheduled ancient monument.

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.
