aerial Photograph of Saltwood Castle Kent UK. The Grade I listed Saltwood Castle is a medieval fortification built not long after the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century and then extended and improved in the 13th and 14th Centuries. The castle was built on the site of a previous castle dating from AD 488 and may even be a Roman site. The Castle was owned by the Archbishops of Canterbury until taken over by Henry VIII in 1540. It is believed that the Knights who killed Thomas Becket met here prior to the murder in 1170. Image available for editorial licencing only

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.
