Bing maps - aerial view: despite the fact that the caption on the screen may read “Stratford-on-Avon”, this link really is to an aerial view of Cherington and Stourton. There is a choice of the “aerial” view directly from above, or the “birdseye” view, from above, at an angle, which may make it easier to pick out features on the ground. Go to aerial view
