aerial photograph of Point West Cromwell Rd Kensington London UK SW7. Point West was originally built in the early 1960s as The Kensington Air Terminal. It was designed by Burnett, Tait & Partners and intended for air travellers to check in before being taken to Heathrow on coaches. It was built on top of a railway intersection known as the Cromwell Curve. The idea did not survive long before airport check in was moved to the more conventional solution of taking place at the airport. Today the building is a mixed use property known as Point West .

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.
