aerial photograph of Exeter College, Oxford University England UK. Exeter College was founded by Walter de Stapledon, Bishop of Exeter, in 1314. The oldest part of the college still extant is the Front Quadrangle and particularly the medieval tower which dates from 1432. The Chapel was built 1854 to 1860 and designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Opposite the Chapel is the Hall which dates from 1618. On the left is the Margary quadrangle which was completed in 1964. J. R. R. Tolkien was a student here from 1911 to 1915 when he graduated with first class honours.
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.
