Website zooms in on county's top images
English Heritage launch their new site, The Images of England project, which gives photos, details and much more.
Althorp House, the Express Lifts Tower and the old Cannon Cinema are among county landmarks featured in a new photo archive by English Heritage.
A picture of stately house Ashby St Ledgers, near Daventry, which became the "command centre" during the planning of Guy Fawkes' gunpowder plot, is also featured in the online gallery of 300,000 images.
About 2,200 volunteers have helped compile the searchable web archive of buildings, monuments and structures called The Images of England project, which has recorded 80 per cent of buildings listed at the turn of the Millennium.
It includes 5,000 images of Northamptonshire and about 1,500 pictures of Northampton.
As well as Northampton's Express Lifts Tower, based in Weedon Road and dubbed Northampton's lighthouse by Terry Wogan, the archive also includes pictures of the county stretch of The Grand Union Canal.
