aerial photograph of Restormel Castle Cornwall England UK. Originally constructed around 1100 AD as a Motte & Bailey Castle, it was rebuilt in stone 1192–1225. It was used as a high status home to the Earls of Cornwall during the medieval period, however by the time of the English Civil War it was in a dilapidated state. It was hastily fortified and garrisoned by Parliamentarian forces, however on 21 August 1644 it was taken by force in an attack by Royalists forces. By the end of the civil war the castle was in a state of total ruin.

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.
