|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of The Carrs Park Wilmslow . Originally the site of a water powered mill built in 1828, the Mill burnt down in 1928 and the area has since been used as a park. The name 'Carrs' is derived from the Old Norse word 'Kjarr' which translates as 'meadow recovered from bog' . The surrounding area was inhabited during the Bronze Age and Bronze Age artifacts have been found near the station.
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.
