|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of the Ross Revenge, broadcasting ship used by Radio Caroline , taken in Tilbury Docks England UK. The vessel was built as a trawler in 1960 at Bremerhaven, and operated as Radio Caroline from 1983 to 1990. In 1991 she broke free of her anchors and ran aground on the Goodwin Sands. The ship was salvaged and brought back to the mainland, however it marked the end of her offshore broadcasts. Currently the ship is maintained by enthusiasts and is on National Register of Historic Vessels.
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.
