Battersea gasometer from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Battersea Gasworks London showing the old gasometer. The old gasometer was built before the second world war and there were proposals to preserve it but in the end it was decided to demolish it and the other gas holders as part of the Nine Elms regeneration. Similar gas holders in German have been preserved and found new uses, for example the Oberhausen Gasbehälter is used as an exhibition space and the Gasbehälter in Wuppertal-Heckinghausen has been converted for multiple uses including offices, a restaurant
and fitness studio. The Battersea gas holder was demolished in 2015 and the site has now been redeveloped.
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.
