aerial photograph of RAF Stenigot with aboandoned tropospheric scatter dishesin the foreground. The base was originally opened as a Chain Home Radar Station to protect Sheffield and Nottingham. The aerial in the top right of the image is one of the last Chain Home antennas still standing. After the war it was used for the ACE High NATO UHF troposcatter Radiocommunication system. Originally there were 82 such stations in 9 countries. The system was decommissioned in the late 1980s when it was replaced with new microwave communications technology.

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. 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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
