Wharram Percy DMV - deserted medieval village aerial photograph
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Wharram Percy DMV - deserted medieval village in Yorkshire England UK. The site was settled in prehistoric times reaching its zenith around the 10th to 12th centuries. In 1086 the Doomsday book refers to the village as Warran. The village survived the Black Death of 1348-9 but succumbed to changing land use when landowners found it more profitable to farm sheep and evicted the villagers. Today the village is preserved and is one of the most studdied DMVs in England.
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.
