The Britain from Above website will soon be changing. The good news is you’ll still be able to search for and view the fantastic Aerofilms images. You’ll also be able to continue to add your comments, photographs and pins– enabling you to carry on sharing your memories and knowledge about places and buildings with other users of the website. The new site will be designed for use on mobile phones and tablets so you’ll be able to do all of this on the move!
During the life of the Britain from Above project, over 250 Groups were set up by users with interests in specific places or themes. Since the project ended, these have been less active and it now makes sense to freeze the Groups. While this means you won’t be able to start any new groups or add any more content you’ll still be able to view what has been added in the past. We’ll also be highlighting some of the amazing resources which were created by these groups, which are a legacy of the project.
These changes will be taking place over the next few weeks and some functions on this site will be unavailable while we carry out this work.

From 23rd of May until 30th May, users will no longer be able to login or register on this site. Thanks for your patience.

  • Railway - no track on site today.

    Opened by Great Northern Railway in 1884. The line from Bradford to Thornton via Queensbury was opened as a joint venture between the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and the Great Northern Railway between 1876 and 1878. The line was extended to Keighley in 1884.

    To the right is the town and site of the railway station for Cullingworth.

    Railway closed to passengers in 1955 and completely closed in 1963. Between 1955 and 1963 the line was used for training and testing, including diesel exhaust tests, and concrete sleeper derailing tests.

    From Cullingworth to Harecroft the p[ath of the line has been used for a footpath (Great Northern Trail).

  • Ellar Car:
    Ellar Carr Mill was built by Joseph Harrison late 18th/early 19th Century. The water powered mill produced cotton goods, but later changed to worsted and finally closed in 1991

    After 1830 used entirely for worsted spinning.
    After 1884 two sheds built; mill rebuilt entirely as three-storeyed twelve-bay steam-powered building (designed by J Robertshaw and Son, Bradford); and a crenellated boundary wall with office controlling site access constructed. Power system remodelled 1901 with addition of new engine and rope drive.

    The Mill is now a residential development- converted into flats and houses in 2000.

    Ellar Carr Mills is a Private Site and the public have no known right of access
