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.

  • This is the village of Sunnyside, built specifically for workers at the Dalton Main (later Silverwood colliery) which is just out of view to the top right of the picture. The village is still there but is surrounded now by a number of post-war and post-Millennium housing estates.

    The bricks used to build these houses were made at a brick company that was set up on the site of the colliery. Unfortunately it was unable to provide enough bricks to finish the estate and so the houses to the far left of the picture were made from a slightly different brick design, which is (obviously) still noticeable today.
