The Britain from Above images are best seen at source where they're zoomable with a login and are dated. Double thumbs up Britain from Above set for Coventry

Good evening, My very good friend Mike Musson is webmaster of Warwickshire Railways, a fabulous collection of photos covering a huge area. Of interest in his Foleshill Station collection are several photos recorded in 1931, during the construction of the current road over railway bridge, that replaced the Lockhurst Lane level crossing. Of extra interest to me is the wooden hut, that became the chapel that I have belonged to for many years. My chapel is the long, single storey building just left of the centre of the photo. It was only seven years old then. There are other photos to look at in all directions.

Continuing my theme, Facing in the opposite direction can be seen the lines that served the Pope factory, the current Dunlop site. Burnaby Road was just a trackway. The single storey buildings are munition workers live-in huts. Yelverton Road is visible, but again, just a track.

That bit of road is my bĂȘte noire. It should be simple to take it to get to the bypass but I make a mistake or get stuck trying to get onto the mini roundabout. Grrrrr. What I'm looking for is an image of the land near Charterhouse Cottages just north of the viaduct near the sewage works and London Road.
