aerial photograph of the Very Group National Distribution Centre in Shaw , Oldham UK, formerly Littlewoods distribution centre. Originally constructed in1907 as cotton mills: Lily, Lily (No. 2), Newby, Rutland, Ash and Dee, Rutland Mill , the Cotton mills closed in 1966 but the group of buildings was converted to a distribution centre which opened in 1979. The conversion involved the demolition of Dee, Ash and Rutland Mills and the construction of new distribution buildings. At its height was the largest employer in Oldham. The distribution centre closed at the beginning of 2021.
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.
