aerial photograph of Ribchester site of the Roman Fort Bremetennacum in Lancashire UK. Ribchester Roman Fort was first constructed as as a simple wooden fort in AD72 which was rebuilt in stone in the 2dn Century AD. The fort was garrisoned by Sarmatian auxiliaries who originated from Sarmatia which covered large parts of what is today Ukraine and Southern Russia. The fort was used throughout the Roman Occupation until the Roman withdrawal in the 4th Century AD, after which it was abandoned. In the 13th Century St Wilfrid's Church was built on the site of the fort. The fort was subject of an episode of the hugely popular TV archaeology program Tine Team in 1994.
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.
