aerial photograph of the Roman Pharos at Dover Kent England UK. The Pharos at Dover was a lighthouse built by the Romans at Dover in AD 46 under the Emperor Claudius, shortly after the Roman conquest of Britain. It was one of a pair with the other one being situated on the Western Heights. Only a small amount of masonry from the western lighthouse remains but the eastern lighthouse is preserved in remarkable condition. Its probably the oldest near complete building in Britain with 3 from 4 floors being Roman in origin. Its owes its survival due to being incorporated into St Mary's church within the castle.
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.
