The Jockey Pub from TV's Shameless
|Buy this picture|
The Jockey Pub from TV's Shameless, real name the Wellington Inn. Shameless is my favorite TV program with the antics of the Chatsworth Estate denziens making for compulsive viewing. We particularly love the character of Frank played brilliantly by David Threlfall and the scriptwritting by Paul Abbott is always fantastic. The series was originaly filmed on this real estate in Gorton. Later the filming moved to a purpose built set in Manchester and I have taken aerial photographs of both Shameless locations. Since this photograph was taken, the entire estate has been demolished and all the houses , tower blocks and pub are gone. The estate was built around 1972 and demolished around 2013. Everything you see in the photo is now gone and also the TV set has been demolished.
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.
