aerial photograph of the Chatham Historic Dockyard Chatham Kent UK. Royal Dockyards at Chathman served the Royal Navy from the 17th century through to final closure in 1984. The ships of Sir Francis Drake and Lord Nelson were built and maintained here. Today much of the site is preserved as the Chatham Historic Dockyard Museum and open to the public. At the heart of the site are the covered building slipways which were built in 1847-8.On the left of the photo , the covered slip with the curved end is NO. 3 covered slip built in 1838. The building was originally one of three and was designed by Sir Robert Seppings
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.
