aerial photograph of St Chad's Church, Wybunbury, Cheshire. The Grade II listed church tower is all that remains of St Chad's Church in Wybunbury. The tower was built in the 15th century to replace a previous church. By the 19th century the church foundations were unstable and the tower was leaning so in 1833 most of the Church was demolished. The lean was corrected by removing soil from underneath the raised part, allowing it to sink back level. A new church was built in 1892 but in 1976 that too was demolished, however it was decided to keep the 15th century tower. The church is steeped in history, for example in 1464 the church was burgled. various items were stolen and a cross broken , however the burglars where apprehended and hung. This period in history is now referred to as "the good old days"
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.
