aerial photograph of Old Eldon Square Blackett Street Newcastle upon Tyne , Tyne and Wear England UK. Surrounded by modern buildings , Old Eldon Square is a tranquil oasis of traditional architecture in the middle of Newcastle city centre. The Square was built 1825 to 1840 and designed by John Dobson . In the centre of the square is the war memorial unveiled in 1923 by Earl Haig designed by Charles Leonard Hartwell. The memorial is surmounted by a statue of Saint George. Originally there were 3 terraces around the square but 2 were demolished to make way for 1960s developments on the site. The remaining terrace is protected by Grade II listing.
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.
