Coryton Refinery from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of the Coryton Refinery Essex UK. This photograph was taken in 2012 when the refinery was still active. Since then production came to an end in 2012 and the site is now used as the Thames Enterprise Park and Deepwater fuel import terminal . 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.
