|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of former tailings ponds in Northwhich Cheshire England UK. Slowly being taken over by nature these former tailings ponds are asociated with the now closed Wallerscote Chemical Works. There is little information available as to what was going on here but the former ICI chemical works was producing soda ash so these are probably soda ash tailings ponds. Aerial photography from 1945 shows them full with liquid tailings, however they have not held liquids for many decades sice then.
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.
