London Gateway Port before construction from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph showing the site of the London Gateway Port and London Gateway Logistics Park taken shortly before construction of the park began in 2008. The port opened in 2013 and built on the site of the former Shell Haven oil refinery which closed in 1999. At the end of the 19th century the site had been occupied by an explosive factory which closed in 1919 before becoming a refinery in the interwar years.
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.
