aerial photograph of Hangman Point & Little Hangman cliffs near Coombe Martin Devon UK The summit of Little Hangman containsa prehistoric earthwork enclosure . The exact date of this enclosure is unknown but it is likely to be one of the so called 'tor enclosures'. These date from around 6000 years ago in the early Neolithic period when humans activity first began to leave a mark on the landscape. The cliffs are on the South West Coast Path and are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cliffs are composed of sandstone called Hangman Grits laid down during the Devonian Period between 60 million years and 419.2 million years ago.

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.
