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.

  • The Penzer Beech has gone c2011, from the corner of Bittel & Hewell Rds, from Decades of People posting their notices on the tree. I remember Granpa always telling them off! Thus after decades of abuse, they killed it! It was a preservation tree... The only Tree left, is a Silver Birch, @ the end of Orchard drive. Grandpa planted it c1965 = Ahhh Happy Poplar Days, all gone now, but one still remembers the Happy days spent there. Where Mum was born & her Cats. :)
