aerial photograph of the Lofthouse interchange - the intersection of the M1 and M62 motorways in Yorkshire UK. Built between 1965 and 1967, the structure is a major engineering achievement working on three levels with all parts designed to absorb movement. The Piers are 12m high and the bridges 128m long. In 1999 two tunnels were constructed beneath the original junction to speed the flow of traffic traffic traveling between the M1 north and the M62 west.

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.
