Preston city centre and the area around Avenham and Miller Park is seen from a totally new perspective.

Nicola Martin, who runs the Preston, Past and Present Facebook group, has been up again with her drone camera to give a very different viewpoint.

See the Victorian parks in all their glory along the banks of the Ribble.

Then tilt round to see the city centre sprawl away into the distance, or look in detail at Winckley Square – a green oasis in the city.

Preston Railway Station can be seen, along with the spire of St Walburge’s in the distance.
