News: New additions to Britain from Above

New additions to Britain from Above

We’ve just added over 8000 new images to the Britain from Above website. This new batch of images dates from 1932 to 1937.

Highlights from this latest upload include photographs of the remains of Iron Age hillforts from across the UK, including Devil’s Dyke near Poynings, Walls hillfort near Chesterton and the Herefordshire Beacon.

In contrast to the ancient hillforts, there are many images of the industrial heritage of the Victorian era, including an excellent set of photographs taken on a flight through the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire.  

We’ve also added some beautiful images of ecclesiastical buildings, including the Cathedral’s at Lincoln, Peterborough and Worcester.

In addition, you can see a series of images showing the Whipsnade Lion under construction in 1932.

Please visit www.britainfromabove.org.uk to discover the new images for yourselves.
