aerial photograph of Broadbury Castle Roman camp Beaworthy Devon. Broadbury Castle is a Roman Marching Camp. Such camps were used when on campaign and were built for each stop. They were only used for a very short period of time, sometimes just a day. This Camp follows the usual rectangular form with rounded corners and is 69m x 61m. It is constructed at the top of a hill which is today used for a communications antenna. While photographing this camp I was surprised to see a second rectangle parch mark just a few feet away to the north. I have found no information on this second structure but it is not uncommon to find multiple marching camps built adjacent each other or even overlapping.

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. 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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
