aerial photograph of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path at Carreg Wastad Point in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales. Carreg Wastad Point was the scene of the last invasion of mainland Britain when on 22 February 1797 a French invasion force of 1400 men landed here and attacked Fishguard. The invasion was a complete failure with the French troops defeated in the Battle of Fishguard by a mixture of British troops and local civilians. The French surrendered after just 2 days. The Royal Navy also captured 2 of the 4 French warships which had brought the invasion for to Wales. The Farm in the centre of the photograph is Trehowel farm where the French had set up thier headquarters and signed the official surrender document.
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.
