Mammoth upload of British material from Ancestry

Presumably reacting to the recent launch of FindMyPast.com, with its extensive collection of records from this side of the Atlantic, Ancestry.co.uk has released a vast amount of new material.

Nearly all of it relates to either England or Scotland, but there are a few collections that include a nod towards Ireland. 

Taking a random selection, it seems most of these new uploads are browseable books, rather than indexed records ready for searching. But valuable additions to online options, nonetheless.
