Latest news from Britain from Above

We've just added over 6000 new images to the Britain from Above website ( This brings us to a total of over 47,000 images online. The latest upload is incredibly varied. We have images of urban life in the north of England, including some excellent examples of slum clearance in Manchester, and of shipbuilding on the Tyne. EAW002153 is particularly interesting - if you look carefully it is possible to see warships being decommissioned, following the end of the war.

We have many images of Gloucestershire, including some great images of Gloucester Cathedral and also of Tewkesbury surrounded by floodwater in 1947.

There are also many fantastic coastal shots from all around the country, including St Michaels Mount, Cornwall and the Belle Tout Lighthouse at Beachy Head, East Sussex.

Also included in the latest upload are a further 97 unlocated images. Perhaps you can help us to identify their locations?
