aerial photograph of Papplewick Pumping Station
Rigg Lane Ravenshead Nottingham NG15 9AJ England UK. Papplewick Pumping Station was built by Nottingham Corporation Water Department 1881 to 1884 for pumping water from the Bunter sandstone to provide drinking water to the City of Nottingham.The station was replaced by electric pumps in 1969 but the buildings and steam engines have been preserved as a museum. The steam engines are run regularly as can be seen by the chimney smoke in the photograph.
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.
