aerial photograph of Tonbridge Castle Tonbridge Kent England UK. Tonbridge Castle was first constructed as a Norman Motte & Bailey Castle in the 11th century, shortly after the Norman Conquest. The original wooden structure was soon rebuilt in stone and the magnificent medieval gatehouse which dominates the site today was constructed in the 13th century. The Castle was refortified during the English civil war but thereafter fell into disuse and the stone used in the construction of nearby bridges and locks. The Georgian Manor House was constructed on the site at the end of the 18th Century.
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.
