isn't that a ruston bucyrus excavator  left of centre in the pic, certainly looks like it, Sentinel S4 would probably be interested in that!  :) erfman

I have happened upon this photo of Walderslade Valley from 1950. I suspect the same view looks radically different now!  :)

Nice view of Dargets Road from the open land below the top of Walderslade Road, now private gardens.

The semi-detached houses partially obscured in the centre foreground of the photo are still there, as is the primary school and probably 2 or 3 of the bungaloes further up the hill. The smaller and/or pre-fab buildings as well as all of the open land (can't see if there are fences) have all been replaced by 1960s and 70s housing.

It would be interesting to be able to compare aerial shots of Walderslade and other areas that have developed massively since the 50s, can somebody develop a Google Earth time machine???
