aerial photograph of St Elphin's Church, Warrington Cheshire UK. Grade II listed St Elphin's Church, Warrington can trace its history back to the dark ages when the first church was erected on the site in by Saint Oswald of Northumbria for Saint Elphin. The first wooden church was replaced with a stone church and the oldest parts of the current church date from the 14th century. The church suffered significant damage at the hands of Parliamentarian forces during the English Civil war and much of it had to be rebuilt at the end of the 17th century. like so much of our ecclesiastical heritage the church suffered a Victorian make over and a large part of the current church dates from the Victorian period including its most dramatic feature, the 86m spire.
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.
