"Castles and Cathedrals" is a compilation of 100 vertical aerial photographs of Britain's most noteworthy religious and military edifices, taken from the Millennium Map. Tintagel Castle, legendary seat of King Arthur; Castle Drogo, a 20th century castle built by Lutyens; Alnwick Castle, the Duke of Northumberland's fortress against the Scots; Harlech Castle, whose resistance under siege inspired the song "Men of Harlech"; Glamis Castle, birthplace of the Queen Mother; Durham Castle and Cathedral, sited on a spectacular bend in the River Wear; Ely Cathedral, soaring from the Fens; and St Paul's Cathedral, with its unmistakable domea "Castles and Cathedrals" brings a surprising new angle to places such as these, and many more. Inspired by the Domesday Book, Tristram Cary and Joe Studholme of Getmapping.com commissioned four specially equipped aircraft to fly the length and breadth of the country in strips - rather like a lawnmower - each one carrying state-of-the-art camera equipment valued at #250,000, to create the "Millennium Map", from which these photographs of castles and cathedrals have been taken.
