aerial photograph of Stockland Great Castle hillfort , Devon England UK. Stockland Great Castle univallate hillfort, that is one defended by a single rampart and ditch. The fort is of an unusual irregular shape and measures 230m x 270m. The fort is bisected by a modern road and while the section in the lower half of the photo is well preserved, that above the road remains only as a crop mark although the outline is very clear in the image. Te site is not a naturally defensible one and as a consequence the ramparts were quite large with the remains being up to 17m wide and 3m high. A number of slingshot stones have been found in the area. The site is associated with the nearby contemporaneous Stockland Little 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.
