aerial photograph of Bridgnorth Castle Shropshire UK. Bridgnorth Castle was first constructed around AD 1101 with the Keep in the photograph being constructed around AD1200. During the English Civil war Bridgenorth was garrisoned by Royalist Forces and besieged by the Parliamentarians. The Siege lasted for 3 weeks but in the end Cromwell prevailed and the Royalists surrendered. Following the battle Parliament ordered the castle to be demolished. Attempts to bring down the keep were not fully successful leaving it a 75 degree angle, a state in which it has remained ever since. In 2001 the castle was investigated by TV's Time Team


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.
