aerial photograph of Brown Willy Bodmin Moor Cornwall England UK. At 420m above sea level, Brown Willy is the highest point on Bodmin Moor. The name probably comes from the Cornish " Bronn Ewhella" which means the "highest hill". In the foreground is the enigmatic Brown Willy Summit Cairn and legend has it that it was the burial place for a King. While the Summit Cairn has never been the subject of an archaeological excavation, other nearby have been and were dated to the bronze age between 2162 BC and 1746 cal BC.
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.
