Ripon Cathedral from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Ripon Cathedral North Yorkshire England UK. The oldest part of Ripon Cathederal , the crypt, dates back to Saxon times when Saint Wilfrid built a church here to replace an older wooden church. Much of the rest of the church was destroyed by King Eadred in 948. This was rebuilt but again destroyed by William the Conqueror in 1069. The Church was again rebuilt with the western end with distinctive twin towers in the photograph being completed in 1220. Further work was carried out through the 15th Century to produce the masterpiece we see today.
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.
