aerial photograph of Colchester Castle , England. The Castle is Europe's largest surviving Norman keep and was built on the site of the Roman Temple of Claudius (TEMPLVM CLAVDII) burned down by Boudica in the revolt against Roman rule. The temple held out against Boudica for 2 days but was eventually overrun and the occupants massacred. The castle was attacked and captured by King John in the first barons Rebellion of 1215. In 1645 suspected Witches were imprisoned and tortured here by the Witchfinder General. The castle was partially demolished in the 17th century but by the 18th century the first attempts at conservation were made. The castle is now preserved as a museum and open to the public.

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.
