Default [SADARS] Britain From Above - by Brian Hilton


Britain From Above - by Brian Hilton

Brian explained that Britain From Above was a four year Heritage Lottery
funded project aimed at conserving 95,000 of the most endangered
photographs from the Aerofilms Collection which had been acquired by
English Heritage and their partners, the Royal Commission for Ancient and
Historic Monuments of Scotland and Wales. The collection contains a unique
aerial photographic archive of 1.2 million negatives representing 20th
century Britain between 1919 and 2006.

Unfortunately, some of the glass negatives and early film negatives had
been stored in less than optimum conditions. Before digitising many needed
restoration and the finished result is an impressive display documenting
the changing face of Britain between 1919 and 1953. Brian was able to show
aerial views of Shefford and surrounding districts which many members were
able to relate to.

Everyone was encouraged to visit the websiteÂ* to enjoy the collection and
perhaps help the site identify some of the unknown locations.
