aerial photograph of Church of St Thomas BecketChapel-en-le-Frith Derbyshire UK. The Grade II listed Church of St Thomas Becket can trace its origins back to a Norman Church built on this site. The Norman Church was replaced with a new church in the 14th century and this has been rebuilt and modified in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries but still retains some of its 14th century features. During the English Civil War Royalist prisoners from the Scottish Army who were captured at Preston were imprisoned in the Church. 40 of the prisoners died and are buried in the Church Graveyard.
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.
