aerial photograph of Caversham Park Reading Berks UK, home to BBC Monitoring & BBC Radio Berkshire. Caversham Manor was established even before the Norma invasion as William the Conqueror awarded the estate to a distant relative. At that time the Manor contained a small castle or defended Manor House and was. During the English Civil war Charles 1st was imprisoned here.The house was demolished and rebuilt in the late 17th Century and again in the 18th and 19th centuries when it was twice burned down. The current building was designed by Horace Jones, the designer of London's Tower Bridge and built in 1850. It is unusual for its tie being built over an Iron frame.
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.
