aerial photograph of Coalhouse Fort, constructed in the 19th century to defend the River Thames. There had been an artillery fort in this vicinity since the 16th century when a blockhouse was built by Henry VIII. The site of this fort has since been eroded away by the Thames. Coalhouse fort was originally constructed in 1799 and then rebuilt 1847-55 and then rebuilt again in 1861. The last rebuilding was supervised by Colonel Charles George Gordon, better known as Gordon of Khartoum. The fort was manned during WWI and rearmed during WWII, initially by regulars but from 1944 it was manned by the Home Guard. The forts military used finally ended in 1949 and today it is preserved by volunteers.

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. 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 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. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
