aerial photograph of the Ffestiniog Railway ( Rheilffordd Ffestiniog) Wales. Opened in 1836 the Ffestiniog Railway was originally intended to carry slate from the quarries of Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog where they were exported all around the world. After the slate mining industry went into decline, tourism took off and now the Ffestiniog Railwayis one of the UK's top tourist attractions. The Festiniog Railway Company is the oldest surviving railway company in the world and recently expanded by opening the Welsh Highland Railway which joins the FFestiniog line at Porthmadog and then travless all the way to Caernarfon.

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.
