Google Street view has received a major update: anyone can now look at 95 percent of the UK's roads. You may be able to see where your ancestors lived, although not the view they saw in "the good old days." Even static landmarks such as Stonehenge have been captured.
Google Street View was introduced to the UK last March, but was originally only available in 25 major cities.
Most of the UK streets and highways were photographed from an automobile with a camera mounted on its roof. However, a few locations that were not accessible by automobile, such as Stonehenge, were photographed by a camera on a specially-built tricycle, as shown in the following video:
Google is constantly expanding the service, so expect to see that last 5 percent covered shortly.
