aerial photograph of Gloucester Docks England UK. situated at the junction of the River Severn and the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal which was opened in 1871, Gloucester Docks is a historic part of Gloucester which was once the centre of shipping trade but in modern times has been repurposed to be a centre of retail, leisure and city living accommodation. The main basin and first of the warehouses were opened at the same time as the canal in 1827 and allowed shipping from the open sea and canal boat access to the Midlands. Parts of the TV series The Onedin Line were filmed at Gloucester Docks.
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.
