aerial photograph of Builth Castle, Builth Wells Powys Wales. Builth Castle was built by Edward I ( Edward Longshanks ) in AD1277 - 1282 on the site of an older Motte and Bailey earthwork castle which had been destroyed by destroyed by Llywelyn ap Gruffudd (Llywelyn the Last). The castle was besieged by Madog ap Llywelyn during the Welsh revolt of 1294 and attacked again by Owain Glyndŵr during the Welsh Rebellion of AD 1400-1415. The castle burnt down in the 16th Century and thereafter was robbed of stone for buiuldings in the town. Today only the earth works remain.
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.
