aerial photograph of St Pancras railway station London England UK, taken from the north looking south accross the new station canopy. St Pancras station is today known as St Pancras International due to its connection to the the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Grade I listed St Pancras Station was opened in 1868 and designed by William Henry Barlow. When completed it had the largest single span roof in the world. The station was given an £800 million refurbishment , completed in 2007 which resulted in the huge new 200m long platform Canopy shown in the photo which was needed to accommodate Eurostar trains which are twice as long as the trains the 19th century station buildings were designed for.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
