Until recently, Google's Street View camera - which snaps 360-degree images for the search engine's online mapping tool - has been restricted to roads. But now a tricycle has taken to the hills...
The 18-stone (114kg) bike, known as a "trike", has toured the country taking pictures of 20 of the National Trust's most notable castles, country houses and landscapes - one of which is Corfe Castle in Dorset. Photo: Google Street View
Internet users can take a virtual tour of sites, including Lyme Park in Stockport, Cheshire - where Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth as Mr Darcy was filmed - from the comfort of their home. Photo: National Trust
Dartmoor's Castle Drogo - often billed as the last castle built in England - is another to have been snapped by Google's heavyweight camera. Photo: Google Street View

The Google trike will be busy snapping several other National Trust places in 2010, one of which will be Giantís Causeway in Northern Ireland.
