Navio Roman fort from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Navio Roman fort and vicus Brough Derbyshire. Built on a defensive site at the confluence of the River Noe and the Bradwell Brook. A pile of stone slabs near the centre of the fort are just visible in the photograph and mark the remains of the Principia or headquarters building. There were four phases of construction at the site beginning with the first fort around.AD 80. This fort was abandoned for a short period around AD 125 and then re-established AD 154-158. The Principia, was constructed AD 158 and the fort continued in use until around AD 350 when it was abandoned. The fort had a well established Vicus shown in the centre of this image, the remains of which are thought to be well preserved but have been little investigated.
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.
