  • This picture is incorrectly labelled as ‘Aerial view of Loughton pits’. It’s actually an aerial view of the M1 motorway with Linford Lakes beyond.

    The picture was taken looking south from above what was to become the Poets Estate in Newport Pagnell.

    Newport Pagnell motorway services, one of the first service stations to open in the UK, can be seen on the left.

    The lakes in the background are former gravel pits and are now the site of Linford Lakes Nature Reserve (previously known as the Hanson Environmental Study Centre).
