aerial photograph of Swing Bridge over the River Tyne in Newcastle upon Tyne. The Grade II listed River Tyne Swing Bridge was opened in 1876 and designed by to William Armstrong. The bridge is hydraulicly powered and the Victorian engineering is still in full working order more than 100 years after it was built. The pridge stands on the site of previous bridges built over the River Tyne in 1270 and 1781. There was also a Roman bridge, Pons Aelius, which may very well have stood on the same site.


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.
