aerial photograph of Wilton Windmill Wiltshire England UK. The Fantail windmill opened in 1821 to replace watermills which were no longer possible when the River Bedwyn was turned into the Kennet and Avon Canal. The mill was used for 100 years before falling into disuse. The Grade II listed Mill was restored to working order again in 1976 by the Wiltshire Historic Buildings Trust and is today run by the Wilton Windmill Society who produce flour for local shops. The mill uses a fan tail to turn into wind and is equipped with two canvas sails and two Patent Sails which have a series of closable wooden slats.

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.
