aerial photograph of the Greyhound Bridge and Lune Millennium Bridge Lancaster Lancashire England UK.TheGreyhound Bridge was originally a railway bridge built in 1911 and this is what dives it its distinctive curve. It was converted to road use in 1972. Next to it is the Lune Millennium Bridge was built in the year 2000 to celebrate the Millennium. Its a Cable-stayed footbridge spanning the River Lune and designed by Whitby Bird . it is built on roughly the same site as the 13th century Old Loyne Bridge which was demolished in 1802. Strangely they only demolished one arch of the bridge and the rest was allowed to fall down over the next 40 years with the last pier falling into the river in 1845.
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.
