aerial photograph of St Botolph's Church, Boston Lincolnshire, England UK. aka the "Boston Stump". The Grade I listed St Botolph's Church at 83m is amongst the tallest Medieval towers in England and one of the countries largest parish Churches. The Church was constructed in stages with the Chancel, nave and aisles constructed 1309 to 1390. and the tower built fro around 1450 to its completion in 1520. The tower was particularly well built for the medieval period and has stood without major structural renovations ever since. It is one of the few surviving towers with an octagonal lantern. The church replaced an older building of Norman origins which itself may have replaced a Saxon church.
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.
