Copyright of photographs under UK law is complex, but a good summary can be found here: http://libraryonline.leedsmet.ac.uk/lco/publications/pdf/lc/is-88.pdf
Quotes from this document:-
For photos where the photographer is known: "Copyright expires 70 years after the end of the year of the author’s death, whether the photograph was published or not, except in the case of photographs taken between 1 June 1957 & 31 July 1989."
For photos where the photographer is not known: "Copyright expires 70 years after the end of the year in which the photograph was taken or was made available to the public. If the identity of the author becomes known before the copyright expires, the rules in the previous section then apply."
Also see http://www.artquest.org.uk/artlaw/copyright/qualifying-for-copyright-protection/old-photographs.htm for information about Publication Right. A quote from this document follows: "Publication Right, introduced into UK law on January 1, 1996, applies to works, including photographs, where copyright has expired and such work has never been exposed to public view - via publication or exhibition. If such works are published for the first time, the publisher automatically acquires a publication right that lasts for 25 years from the end of the year of first publication. This right is similar to copyright, and enables the publication right owner to prevent any reproduction they have not authorised."
