aerial photograph of the Halvergate Marshes on the Norfolk Broads England UK. Taken looking west into the setting sun the image shows South Walsham Marches in the foreground with the low sun angle picking out the numerous drainage channels. in Roman times the area was an open Estuary but since then has silted up. From the 17th century the area has been drained with wind pumps and drainage channels to produce grazing marshes. The area has been protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest since 1981 and is now recognised as anEnvironmentally sensitive area
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.
