aerial photograph of Durham , County Durham England UK, showing Durham Cathedral, Durham Castle the River Wear and Durham University. Durham Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back to the year AD 1093. The Normal building was built by William de St-Calais who was appointed by William the Conqueror. The towers were added in the 13th century. The cathedral contains the tombs of Saint Cuthbert and The Venerable Bede ( St Bede). Durham University was founded in 1832 and has an estate which includes 63 listed buildings including those on Palace green and Durham Castle shown in the photo.
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.
