aerial photograph of Ardwick Manchester England UK showing the area around Hyde Road and its intersection with Devonshire Street and Devonshire Street North. In the foreground are Mason Marble and the Stagecoach Depot. Also in the photo is the railway junction between the London and North Western Railway joins the Great Central Railway. The line was originally constructed by the Manchester and Birmingham Railway in 1840 and they then merged with the LNWR in 1846. The line to Sheffield was built by the Sheffield, Ashton-Under-Lyne and Manchester Railway in 1842. This included a Station at Arwick in the centre of the photo.
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.
