aerial photograph of Deptford High Street and Deptford railway station , Deptford London,SE8 . Deptford railway station was opened in 1836 by the London and Greenwich Railway making it one of the oldest railway stations in London. The original 19th century buildings were replaced by Southern Railway before the war. The Southern railway buildings were then demolished and replaced with modern buildings in 2011. Ths photograph shows the old Southern Railway station buildings. Deptford station is built on the Grade II listed London Bridge – Greenwich Railway Viaduct which at 3 1/2 miles long is one of the wonders of the Victorian age and the longest run of arches in Britain. It was built 1834-36 for the London and Greenwich Railway which was the first elevated railway in the world.
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.
