Visit Historic England's Aerial Photo Explorer


The Historic England Archive allows you to explore some 400,000 digitised images from its aerial photo collections.

This is a nationally important collection, now holding over 6 million images covering the whole of England.

The collection can be used by anyone to see how any part of the country has changed over the last 100 years.

For amateur and heritage professionals alike, the collection is an important resource that helps us to understand England's rich and complex heritage.

Use their nationally important collections of aerial photographs to explore your area on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.

Alternatively, why not find the place where you grew up, where you now live or why not look for your favourite football ground, railway station or the places you visit?
