aerial photograph of Bilbrough York Yorkshire YO23. Bilbrough was the home of .Thomas Fairfax, parliamentary commander-in-chief during the English Civil War and he is buried in the village church. The name Bilbrough means the fortress of the Bila, who were a tribe who lived in the area until the dark ages. My eye was caught while flying over at Ingrish Hill just above and to the left of the village. It is surrounded by ancient ridge and furrow field markings which stop at the top of the hill. Could this hill have been the fortress of ancient times? I think it needs a visit from the Time Team.
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.
