A30 main road Devon from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of the A30 main road looking east towards Honiton Devon England UK. Formerly a major coaching route the A30 has connected Lands End and the the South West to London and the East since the 17th century when it appeared on maps dated to 1675. In the 19th century it was known as "Great Road to Land's End". Unfortunately it was not just popular with tourists and in the 17th century was frequented by highwaymen. One such highwayman was William Davies who was hanged in 1689. These days Highway robbery is known as "Vehicle Excise Duty" and no longer results in hanging.
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.
