aerial photograph of Cranmore Castle iron age hill fort Tiverton Devon England UK. Cranmore Castle is an unusually large univallate hill fort constructed in the iron age between 400BC and 100 AD.The site is overlooking the confluence of the River Lowman and River Exe. The site also has an excellent view over the town of Tiverton and for this reason artillery was sited here during the English Civil War when Parliamentarian troops attacked the Royalist Garrison at Tiverton Castle. The site was also the scene of a battle in 1549 during the "Prayer Book Rebellion" which was a rebellion against the introduction of the Book of Common Prayer which was very unpoppular , especially in Devon and Cornwall.
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.
