tethered balloon at Lower Gardens Bournemouth from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of tethered balloon known as the Bournemouth Eye at Lower Gardens Bournemouth Dorset, England UK. The Balloon could carry up to 28 passengers to heights of up to 150m. The experience ran until 2016. The Gardens were opened in the 19th century. Previously the land had been marsh and rough vegetation. The land was reclaimed and turned into public parkland between 1840 and 1872.
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.
