I've just been pointed in the direction of a fabulous resource which aims to cover every part of the UK in photos. Whilst this is primarily a contemporary archive my hope would be that it also becomes a historical resource, and not just due to the passage of time!
I found the above gem within minutes (after searching Hartcliffe, Littlehampton and Leadhills!). It shows Midsomer Norton 18 months after closure and before tracklifting. This may be the first time this shot has reached such a large audience.
The site is Geograph and can be found here. Expect more gems over the next few weeks as I travel up and down the route ...
