aerial photograph showing the prehistoric landscape around Dumpdon Camp iron age hillfort , Dumpdon Hill, Devon England UK. Field patterns across the English landscape have evolved through millennia. The first fields were enclosed in prehistoric times, while the majority of the small irregular fields in this image probably date to the medieval period. The larger rectangular fields, such as those on the centre left of the photo, are more modern usually dating from the period of enclosure from the 16th to 19th century when common land was enclosed and became the property of one owner.
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.
