St Giles' Church, Oxford aerial photograph
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of St Giles' Church, Oxford England UK. St Giles' Church was built in 1120, although it was first recorded in 1086 when an entry in the Doosday book marked it as a plot of land intended for the building of a church. It was constructed outside of the city walls and at the time in open countryside. The tower was added in the 13th century. The church was damaged during the English Civil war but despite battle raging around it, church services continued even during the siege of Oxford.To the left of the church is the church hall on Woodstock Rd, itself an interesting old building. In front of it is a Turnpike Milestone indicating it is 55th stone from London.
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.
