Corpus Christi College, Cambridge from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of The College of Corpus Christi and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Cambridge England UK. Corpus Christi College was established in 1352 and still retains some of its medieval buildings such as the Old Court, built in 1356, in the top of the photo. This building was lucky to survive as the College was burned down during the Peasants' Revolt in 1381. During the Wars of the Roses of 1460 the College was armed with artillery and arrows for self defence. The college is connected to St Benet's Church by a gallery built in the 16th Century. The church is much older and the tower dates from the Saxon period. On the right of the image is a triangular garden, this is the Bursars garden which contains a Mulberry tree donated by James I.
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.
