I found this image particularly fascinating. I'm not an archaeologist, however its clear the image shows previous field boundaries and or watercourses. To me it looks like the outlines of Bronze age fields showing like a ghost from 5000 years ago. They could also be watercourses in marshy land but whether fields or marshland the hut circles clearly show this was the land occupied by our ancestors. If any archeologists have more info on these marking please email and I will add it to the description.

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.
