parch marks revealing a prehistoric enclosure from the air
|Buy this picture|
Parch marks on aerial photograph showing an enclosure near Cheriton Fitzpaine Devon England UK. In this case it is likely to be a prehistoric enclosure dating from the bronze age or iron age.The image shows a double ditch arrangement with also a tangential line directing towards the entrance. At time of writing , I have no history to the site as it does not appear on either the OS map or the Historic England Map however I am told it is a known site since the 1980's and I will add any information when I find it.
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.
