Brilliant!

I too have spent some time down 'memory lane' - fascinating.

The 360-degree viewing is also excellent.

Yes, Otley Manor looks amazing, I never realised it was so big! clown-dark.jpg



Street View is better now that they have covered the whole of the UK. Well not quite perhaps - there are some private roads down which even the dreaded Google Camera Cars have not dared venture! Wink

I note also that where national security matters are relevant, they have not completed a particular road or 'jumped' past whatever it is that is sensitive. Well done the powers that be.

Huh ? You mean like outside the MOD base where I used to work ?
Or RAF Credenhill, home to the SAS ?

Yep, they're both there. Should stop the cops harassing photographers now, as everything a terrorist would need to know is on Google.

The NATO base, not too far from me, has certainly not escaped Google!

From what I see, the entrances are there - but there are no internal details.

Anyone targeting these place can drive by like any member of the public...

EDIT:

Just checked Credenhill Bri - it's no different from Lyneham, Brize et al.

Well of course - the Google cars would not be barging their way into a military base!

I don't think it is an issue at all really. In fact maybe even helpful to photographers............ "It's on Google Street View officer" etc Grin

All bases will be 'on there' Jonah. Loooong before Google ran their cameras up and down the streets there was Google Earth.

Did you ever wonder why why the resolution was soooooo high over sensitive military installations...???

Think about it...

Not quite sure how a sv car can get that close..... it went across that rickety bridge you have to walk across to get the castle!!
