aerial photograph of Oxwich Castle on the Gower Peninsula, South Wales ( Castell Oxwich ). Oxwich Castle is a fortified manor house dating from the Tudor period. It was built built by Sir Rice Mansel and following his death in 1559, his son, Sir Edward Mansel between 1520 and 1580. By the mid 17th century the family had moved out and leased the castle to tenants. The building became dilapidated by the 18th century but it continued to be used as a farmhouse right up until the 20th century. The castle is now cared for by CADW and open to the public.
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.
