Aerial Views

We've now started a collection of amazing aerial photos very kindly provided by David Bond, a resident of the village.
The photos were taken using a small unmanned remote-controlled multi-rotor helicopter, fitted with a camera.
Hopefully we will be adding to this initial collection in the near future - meanwhile, take a look at the first collection HERE.


We've started to compile a series of slideshows from the photos already received and will continue to build on them as we obtain more photos from you.
If you want to have your photos displayed then there are several ways that you can get them to us - they're shown on the menu of the new Burley Photo Gallery. Here's the page.
The same page has a drop-down menu showing the slideshows already created.
