aerial photograph of the disappeared medieval village of Alkmonton in Derbyshire England UK. This DMV is a scheduled ancient monument and was once a thriving village with its own chapel. The ridge and furrow field markings where the villagers once grew their food show clearly in the image.The village was documented in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it is recorded that `Alchementune' was owned by Henry de Ferieres.From 1100 the village contained a hospital for female lepers. it is not known why the village died out but today we have only the archaeology. Note how one of the track ways in the top right of the photo continues into the modern field as a crop mark. A Church font was found buried here in 1844 and is now in St Johns Church, Alkmonton.

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. 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.
