aerial photograph of Caverswall Castle Caverswall Staffordshire England UK. Grade I listed Caverswall Castle can trace its origins back to the medieval period when in 1275 the Caverswall family were granted licence to crenellate ( permission from the King to build a fortified property ). By the 17th century the castle was in poor condition but it was still garrisoned by Parliamentarian forces during the English Civil War. In 1615 the Mayor of Stafford, Matthew Cradock, bought the castle and built the house within its walls which remains to this day. The Castle is privately owned and not 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. 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.
