aerial photograph of Mount Batten, Plymouth England UK. Mount Batten is a rocky outcrop overlooking the mouth of the River Plym. It is named after the local P in the 17th century, Sir William Batten. The site has been occupied since prehistoric times with extensive evidence of international trading through the bronze age and iron age. During the English Civil War Parliamentarian forces constructed an earthwork fort on the site. After the war, in 1652 an artillery fort, Mount Batten Tower was built on the peninsular to defend Plymouth and Sutton Harbour. Today it is a scheduled ancient monument. During the First World War, sea planes were flown from around the Peninsular with the base being known as RNAS Cattewater

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.
