Wyre Light, Fleetwood from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of theWyre Light, Fleetwood Lancashire. Built 1839 to 1840 it marksg where the Lune Deep joins the River Wyre navigation channel.Originally it was known as the Port Fleetwood Lighthouse and was unusual in that it was constructed using cast iron screw piles which was a world first for an offshore light beacon.There was a two story wooden building and lantern on top but this burnt down in 1948 leaving just the frame on which an automatic beacon was placed and served until 1979. The structure now lies abandoned to its fate.
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.
