aerial photograph of West Wykeham deserted medieval village (DMV) Ludford Lincolnshire UK. Noted for its remarkably well preserved earthworks, Historic England state " West Wykeham is regarded as one of the two best examples of extinct villages in Lincolnshire". The Doomsday book of 1086 records the village as having 11 residents. The village is recorded as having a church dedicated to St Edward at the end of the 12th Century. Poll Tax returns of 1377 show 59 Tax payers in total for both East and West Wykeham combined although by that time most were in East Wykeham. By 1382 the church had ceased to appoint a priest and West Wykeham church was recorded as ruinouse. The last historical record of the village was in 1428 when it was reported as having fewer than 10 households.

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.
