Essential maintenance

HES is currently undertaking essential maintenance on our web services. This will limit access to services in the following ways:


- Subscription access for HES online services will be unavailable (Scran, NCAP)

- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)

- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)


General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.

We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.


During the Britain from Above project, users of the website created their own groups as a way of communicating with like-minded people about shared interests. These groups were wide-ranging in their subject matter, from Chocolate Factories to Broad Gauge Railways and from Pubs and Breweries to Racecourses. These groups are now closed but you can view the content which includes links to relevant images and personal memories. Feel free to browse the groups below.

The Legacy page brings together some of the highlights from these groups.
