RAF Calveley aerial photo
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of the former RAF Calverley Cheshire England UK. RAF Calveley was constructed 1941 to 1942. It was originally intended to provide additional fighter defences for Liverpool but by the time construction was complete the requirement had switched to training. Miles Masters and Airspeed Oxfords were the primary training aircraft flown from here. RAF Calverley closed in 1946 and today the site is used for non aviation purposes. The concrete runways have long gone, however the outline of the taxiways are clearly visible in this aerial photo. Various buildings including the control tower remain in derelict condition.
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.
