aerial photograph of Port Meadow, Oxford England UK. Legend has it that Port Meadow was given to the Freemen of Oxford by Alfred the Great for services rendered in defending the realm against the Danes. The area has not been ploughed at any time during modern history so it is rich in archaeological remains including Bronze Age round barrows and civil war fortifications. During the first world war the Royal Flying Corps had an aerodrome on the site. The River Isis flows along the side of the meadow and it was along this stretch of river that Lewis Carroll took Alice Liddell for a boat trip, telling her stories which would become Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

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.
