aerial photograph of the site of Legbourne Priory Lincolnshire UK. Legbourne Priory was a a Cistercian nunnery founded at the end of the 12th Century and operating until dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536.Today nothing remains of the building structures above ground but earthworks reveal the layout of the inner and outer precincts of the Priory and including associated water-control features. The Priory buildings are surrounded by the remains of ridge-and-furrow cultivation. Historical records exists from 1440 showing the Bishop complaining that the Prioress was entertaining and supporting her own family at the cost of the Priory.

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.
