Stokesay Castle from the air in 1948

Taken in 1948, this aerial photograph shows Stokesay Castle, its half-timbered gatehouse and the church of St John the Baptist. Stokesay lies just to the south of Craven Arms in Shropshire.

St John the Baptist was substantially rebuilt in the 17th century after it suffered serious damage in a Civil War skirmish.

You can see more photos of Stokesay on this blog.
