Alderley Edge aerial photograph
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Alderley Park ,Alderley Edge , Cheshire, formerly Astra Zeneca. The site was originally a house called Alderley Park which was built in 1818 and burnt down in 1931. ICI bought the remains of the house in 1950 and converted it into a science park. In 2008 ICI was taken over by AkzoNobel and in 2013 they pulled most of their operations out of Alderley Park. Since then the park has been converted to a multi occupancy Science Park centered on bio and life sciences. By 2017 there were over 150 companies at the site.
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.
