aerial photograph of rocky cliffs on the north coast of Cornwall at Dennis Point Cornwall England UK. The name Dennis Point is thought to relate to an Iron Age fort which may have stood here, Dennis being derived from Dinas, which is Cornish for Fort. There is no longer any trace of a fort at this location and it has probably been eroded by the sea. The coastal erosion is the reason for the spectacular cliffs and has also been the sight of many shipwrecks through the centuries. The coast along this stretch is designates ad a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
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.
