aerial photograph of Drake's Island Plymouth Devon UK. Drake's Island was first fotified in the 16th century to protect Plymouth from attacks by the French and Spanish. The defences were extensively rebuilt in the 19th century in response to the 1859 Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom. The defenses continued to be maintained and improved up to the second world war.The military finally abandoned the Island in 1963. From 1964 to 1989 the island was used as a youth adventure training but was subsequently abandoned. There are plans to turn the site into a hotel but at the time of writing no work has been carried out.

Prints are available from just £50 and usage licences from just £195 - see my price list left and the shopping cart below the photo. 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 shown 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. Although these images are usually referred to as drone photos they are actally taken with aeroplanes and helicopters which is why I can take them from much higher up than drone photographers are allowed to fly. The shopping cart is just a few of the popular items, there are more options starting at just £50 on my prices page. With prints and wall products I can produce any size or style that the photo lab produces, just email for a quote. NB the shopping cart are for standard sizes, many pictures in my gallery are non standard such as panoramic or square. In these cases either the prints need to be made non standard or the image made to fit the print size. Obviously purchase of a print or wall product does not grant rights to make copies for which you also need to buy a licence Prints and Wall Products are made specially to order and therefore cannot be cancelled or refunded so please choose carefully.
