UKAerialPhotos.com reveals secret locations with RAF aerial photos
Press Release:
The imagery derived from RAF photographic sheets that were previously subject to censorship - with many military sites removed or clouds painted over secret installations - can be seen in their entirety thanks to the efforts made into uncovering the MOD sites and replacing the censored material. This extensive research, undertaken by UKAerialPhotos.com's partner, The GeoInformation Group, means the records now provide a breadth of detail not accessible via traditional offline resources.

UKAerialPhotos.com offers professionals such as planners and architects a valuable online resource. Additionally, with the current boom in local historical interest and genealogy, those researching their family tree will be able to track down an ancestor's now demolished neighbourhood or learn how their area has changed and developed.

Spokesperson, Christine Bool, says: "The growing interest in local history and genealogy has given us added impetus to make this fascinating historic photography available to a wider audience, and provide an insight into wartime and postwar Britain. For example it is possible to see military bases in certain city parks, docks full of steam powered shipping and northern factories belching out smoke from brick chimneys. The comparison with modern Britain is startling."

Users can search by town, village, postcode or map grid reference. Imagery can be previewed for free, with more detailed photos available to purchase.

Digital imagery can be downloaded and used in graphics packages or printed out. More imagery from hidden archives will be revealed to expand the online archive in the coming months and years.
