The website will be changing
The Britain from Above website will be changing.
It’s now nearly 5 years old so it’s time to give it a facelift and review how some of the features work. We’ve started looking at Groups and adding Tags, so these may look and work differently on the new website.
We’ll provide more detail when we know when the new site will be launched.
New on Britain from Above
In the first of our uploads since the Britain from Above project wound down we’ve put together a themed set of post-War images.
Many thanks to everyone who has made suggestions for unlocated items. A number of records have now been pinpointed, and they no longer appear in the Unidentified Gallery.
