|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Gloucester Cathedral Gloucestershire England UK. Founded as an Abbey in the Dark Ages, the first elements of the surviving structure were laid down as the Abbey Church at the end of the 11th century. Much of the original Norman structures survives including the Norman Nave, with some later additions such as the south porch. The cathedral has a stained-glass window , dated 1350, depicting golf, one of the oldest images of the game. Henry III was coronated here in 1216 an unusual exception to use usual coronations at Westminster Abbey. The cathedral was extensively restored between 1873 and 1897 by George Gilbert Scott.
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.
