aerial photograph Chalk Farm London UK, showing Primrose Hill railway station & The Roundhouse. Primrose Hill railway station was opened in 1855 by the North London Railway. It was previously called Hampstead Road and then later Camden (Chalk Farm) . Primrose Hill closed in 1992 and the platform buildings were removed in 2008. The Station Building shown in the photo remains but is not used by the railway. The Roundhouse was built in 1847 by the London & North Western Railway and designed by Robert B. Dockray and Robert Stephenson. It had a short life as an engine shed as steam locomotives rapidly became too big for its relatively small dimensions and by the end of the 19th century was used as a warehouse. In 1964 it was converted to an arts venue in which role it still serves. The Building received a £27m renovation completed in 2006 and is Grade II listed.
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.
