aerial photograph of GWR 1500 Class 0-6-0 pannier tank steam locomotive No 1501 on the Severn Valley Railway Bridgnorth Shropshire UK. GWR No 1501 was built in 1949 and is the last surviving GWR 1500 class 0-6-0PT shunting engine. The class were replaced by Diesel Shunters in 1961 and was subsequently used by the National Coal Board until 1969 when even the NCB converted to diesel. Fortunately she was rescued for the Severn Valley railway who have used her ever since.
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.
