|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Stockland Little Castle , Devon England UK. Stockland Little Castle is a small 126m x 104m embanked enclosures, with an external ditch known as a round. The construction dates from the late iron age or early Roman period and would have enclosed a number of dwellings. Lightly defended agricultural settlements of this type were largely replaced by undefended communities by the 7th century AD. There are more than 750 rounds in Great Britain and Stockland Little Castle is a fairly typical example. The ramparts are around 8m wide and the remains still stand up to 2m high. The site is associated with the nearby contemporaneous Stockland Great 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.
