aerial photograph of Hardwick Old Hall Derbyshire England UK. Hardwick Old Hall was built by Bess of Hardwick in 1587. Bess was a the wealthiest woman in England following a series of marriages where all her husbands seem to have died and left her all their money. This led to her being an Elizabethan shopping queen and before the Hall was even finished she started building another hall adjacent the old one. Once both Hardwick Halls were completed the old hall was used in conjunction with the new hall. The old hall eventually fell into disuse and ruin in the 18th Century. Today its run by English Heritage for the National Trust and is open to the public.

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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
