aerial photograph of Roman signal station, Scarborough, North Yorkshire England UK . The Roman signal station was built in the370 AD and is one of a series along the North Sea coast which warned of raids by Saxons. When built it comprised of a 33m wide ditched enclosure on which was built a 30m high wooden signal tower. Today only the foundations stones remain which were uncovered in the 1920's after being buried for nearly two millennia. The signal station was in use until destroyed in the 5th century AD. Around 1000 AD a Chapel was built on the site, partially incorporating the remains of the Roman structure. This was destroyed during the invasion by Harald Hardrada in 1066.

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.
