|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Earith Bulwark English Civil War Fort / Bastion built by Parliamentarian forces between 1643 and 1645 and is thought to be the work of English engineers, Richard Clamp and Captain John Hopes, employing Dutch style fortification principles. In the early part of the English Civil war Earith was near the frontier between Parliamentarian held areas and royalists areas. During the second world war a Alan-Williams turret was mounted in the fort and the remains are still well preserved to this day. Alan-Williams turrets were a rotating steal dome mounted over a concrete pit. It contained a machine gun and a crew of two.
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.
