aerial photograph of Cow Castle Iron Age hill fort in the Exmoor National Park, Somerset, England UK. Cow Castle is a slight univallate hillfort ( small, single ditch and bank ) dating from some time in the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age , ie between the eighth and fifth centuries BC. Slight univallate hillforts are relatively rare with there being about 150 in the UK. Cow Castle is a significant example with it's well chosen defensive position on a Knoll above the River Barl valley and it's good state of preservation.
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.
