Wroxeter Roman town from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Wroxeter Roman town in Shropshire England UK. Known as Viroconium Cornoviorum in roman times, it was the 4th largest Roman Town in Britain and home to some 15000 people. The large wall you can see in the photograph is the remains of the Basilica and is the largest piece of free-standing Roman wall in England. The town was abandoned some time after the Romans left Britain with evidence of occupation ceasing after the 8th Century.
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.
