aerial photograph of Penrice Castle on the Gower Peninsula, South Wales. Penrice Castle was built by the de Penrice family in the 13th century to replace a timber Motte & bailey structure which had been constructed about a mile away, shortly after the Norman Conquest. The owners moved to Margam Abbey in the 16th century after which the castle was used for farming but was eventually abandoned leaving the ruin we see today.

Adjacent the castle is a Grade I listed neo-classical mansion house built in the late 18th century to a design by Anthony Keck.


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. 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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
