Old Oak Common, London from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Old Oak Common, London UK. When this photograph was taken in 2010 much of the Victorian railway infrastructure was still extant, however since this was taken, most of it has been demolished and replaced with the new Old Oak Common Elizabeth Line Depotand the Old Oak Common Crossrail Depot. Even the flats in the centre of the photograph have been demolished and replaced with new tower blocks as part of the Notting Hill Genesis Oaklands Regeneration project in conjunction with Notting Hill Genesis . The photo shows one of the original turntables which dates back to the days of Steam under the Great Western Railway who established the railway depot here in 1901. Originally there were 4 f these large turntables but now all are gone.
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.
