Codford's Military Landscape

Aerial photography can reveal evidence of past landscapes, often very difficult to detect on the ground. This vertical photograph taken in 1945 shows the landscape to the north of Codford and south of Salisbury Plain, an area noted for military activity during both World Wars. It shows clearly a large number of ephemeral buildings and earthworks that relate to Codford’s use as a military camp between 1916 and 1945.
