aerial photograph of Dinefwr Castle near Llandeilo Carmarthenshire, Wales. According to legend Dinefwr Castle was built by Rhodri the Great in the dark ages, however no archaeological evidence has emerged to confirm this. More likley it was built by Hywel Dda, king of Deheubarth, in the 10th century. The castle was rebuilt by Rhys ap Gruffydd in the 12th century. The castle was captured by Edward I in 1277 and burnt down during the Welsh rebellion of 1316. The castle was besieged by Owain Glyndŵr in 1403 but held firm. The castle was converted to a summer house in the 17th century but burnt down in the 18th century. Today the castle is owned by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales and lies within the Dinefwr Park.
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.
