Wakefield Lodge, Potterspury from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Wakefield Lodge, Georgian hunting lodge in Potterspury Northamptonshire England UK. Grade II listed Wakefield Lodge was built in 1748 to 1750for 2nd Duke of Grafton and designed by by William Kent. There were some 19th century extensions but these were removed when much of the rear of the house was demolished in 1948. Historic England have an aerial photograph taken in 1928 at the same angle as this which shows the original rear before demolition. The image can be seen on the britainfromabove.org.uk website with reference epw023955 and makes an interesting comparision with this image.
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.
