The motor car transformed England's towns and countryside, changing our working and living patterns, our landscapes to carscapes.

Dramatic aerial photographs show the surprising grandeur of motorway design, and the exhibition will explore how our motoring heritage has developed its own art and architecture. To answer through pictures and objects a very modern question, how do people and traffic co-exist? The exhibition will launch a new English Heritage publication, England's Motoring Heritage from the Air by John Minnis.
