A digital aerial archaeology tool will allow people to discover previously unknown details about local landscapes, including prehistoric hill forts — something we have right here on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge — through virtual flights over England.

'This new aerial archaeological mapping tool lets people fly virtually over England and drink in its many layers of history,' said Duncan Wilson, chief executive of Historic England.

'It will allow everyone to explore the hidden heritage of their local places and what makes them special. We hope it will give people a springboard to further investigation, whether for research purposes or simply to satisfy curiosity.'

Very exciting!
