aerial photograph of Kinnerley Ammunition Depot ( ammo dump ) Shropshire. During World War II, the sleepy Shropshire village of Kinnerley was home to a massive Ammunition Depot with over 200 Ammunition storage buildings. The buildings were spread over a wide area to avoid the risk of a detonation in one building taking out the whole site. Each building was fed by a train line which ran right inside the building so the munitions could be unloaded under cover from the weather. The site was not declassified until the 1950s and today lies largely abandoned. Some of the buildings have found civil uses but many lie abandoned moldering away until they finally colapse.

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.
