Beauchief Abbey from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Beauchief Abbey, Sheffield,South Yorkshire, England, UK. Beauchief Abbey was a Premonstratensian monastary founded in AD1183 and dissolved by Henry VIII during the English Reformation in 1537. Following dissolution the Abbey was mined for stone and fell into ruin, however the Abbey Tower remained and in the 17th century a small chapel was added to the rear so that it could be used as a church. This allowed the building to survive to present times and it is now a scheduled ancient monument.
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.
