Aerial View of Britain being Displayed on City Centre Street

Today, the Royal Geographical Society declared that aerial photos that reveal over 100 landscapes and scenes from all over Britain will be exhibited on a city centre street.

The arrangers said that everything from striking coastlines and mountains to shopping malls and power stations will be covered from the top. Britain from the Air will commemorate the multiplicity of the scenery on their doorstep.

It is reported that the free display in Bath city centre will incorporate a big walk-on Ordnance Survey map, which will measure 16m by 8m. The same would ensure that people are able to identify the site where the picture has been taken, and also gauge the length and width of the nation - in practical terms.

The images would include spectacles like a heart-shaped wood of hawthorn trees in Oare, Wiltshire, and an earth-raised statue of Sultan the Pit Pony in Caerphilly, Wales.

Symbols of industry and agriculture such as a salmon farm in the Shetland Isles are also comprised in the photos.

Actor and anchor Michael Palin, President of the Royal Geographical Society, will start the show next Tuesday.

He said, "Our landscapes in Britain tell the stories of our heritage, bring alive the beauty of our environment, and challenge us all to understand the changes taking place in our towns and cities”.
