aerial photograph of the City of London with St Katherine Docks, St Katharine's & Wapping, London E1W 1AT in the foreground. On the left is tower bridge and above it the Toer of London.St Katharine Docks opened in 1828 and was designed by Thomas Telford . The docks served as part of the Port of London until 1968. It has since been transformed into a popular leisure and residential area. The name St Katharine comes from a hospital which was established here in the 12th ceentury and was demolished along with more than 1000 houses to build the dock.
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.
