aerial photograph Vale Royal Abbey Golf Course Cheshire England UK. Originally founded as a Cistercian Abbey in 1270 by Edward I the Abbey was disolved by Henry VIII in 1538.After the dissolution much of the Abbey was demolished, however significant parts survived and were incorporated into a mansion house built on the site. Although this house has been modified over the years, much of the Tudor structure and preceeding Abbey survive to this day. The Building is Grade II listed. Today the surrounding parkland forms Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club with a course laid out by Simon Gidman in 1998.
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.
