Spode Works Stoke-on-Trent from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Spode Works Pottery Factory Stoke-upon-Trent Staffordshire England UK. Spode was founded by Josiah Spode in 1767 who bought the Spode Works in 1776. It was here that he perfected a stoneware that resembled porcelain. The company went into receivership in 2008 and the Spode factory closed, however there is a Spode museum still on the site. This aerial photograph was taken in 2007 before closure when the Spode Works was still in production.
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.
