aerial photograph of Caus Castle Shropshire England UK. Caus Castle is an Iron Age Hillfort with the remains of a Norman motte-and-bailey castle built on top of it.The Castle was built by Roger le Corbet shortly after the Norman conquest at the end of the 11th century. By the end of the 12th century the castle was sufficiently important that it had a small town within its bailey.The town had two main streets and two churches. By the 16th century the castle was in poor condition and inhabited by only two tenants. The castle was finally destroyed in the 1645 during the English Civil War when the Royalist garrison was defeated by atacking Parliamentarian forces.
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.
