|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Sauvey Castle, Launde, near Withcote, Leicestershire, England, UK.The Castle was built during the reign of King Stephen 1135-54. Stephen reigned in a time of war with numerous challenges to his sovereignty and many castles were built. Sauvey was one of the less common shell keep castle designs of which just 71 are known. The castle was never an important one and by 1373 it had fallen into disuse and materials were taken from it to build Rockingham Castle.
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.
