aerial photograph of Castle Hill Iron Age hill fort Huddersfield West Yorkshire. The site has been occupied for more than 4000 years and while the remains of the Iron Age Hill fort are clearest to see today, the site also includes a 12th-century motte and bailey castle and deserted medieval village.The tower on the summit is not as old as it looks and was opened in 1899 to celebrate the silver jubilee of Queen Victoria. During World War 2 , an anti-aircraft battery was constructed on the fort, some parts of which remain today.
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 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.
