Spaghetti Junction - a concrete Tagliatelli with HGV sauce, always served cold after a long wait !
aerial photograph of Gravelly Hill Interchange aka Spaghetti Junction Birmingham, West Midlands England UK. Opened in 1972 the junction is the intersection of the M6 motorway and the Aston Expressway A38(M) but soon earned the nickname Spaghetti Junction. It took 4 years to build and occupies a historic transport intersection at the meeting point of the Tame Valley Canal, Grand Union Canal and Birmingham and Fazeley Canal which now run underneath the motorway.
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.
