Preston’s Marina turns 25 years old this weekend and to celebrate we’re showing it off in its best light.

Tony Worrall, who runs the Preston Flickr group and has been a long time contributor to Blog Preston, regularly takes pictures of the Marina and Preston Docklands.

A Tony Worrall sunset picture is a regular on Twitter of the Docks basking in the glow of the sun going down.

So to mark the Marina reaching its quarter century here are some fantastic pictures of a place where Prestonians like to go for a stroll, particularly on a warm summers evening.
