|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Myatt's Field North estate, now the Oval Quarter, Fairbairn Green London SW9 taken in 2013 just before much of the area was demolished and rebuilt as a new Urban Village.Myatt’s Fields estate was built 1970 to 1984 to replace housing lost in the war. Much of the area had been flattened in the Blitz with a V2 landing in the area in the centre of the photograph. The estate is unusual in that it is heated with a district heating scheme which uses an underground boiler with the Chimneys protruding above the ground and looking rather like the conning tower of a submarine, giving it the name the Camberwell Submarine.
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.
