In a┬áVictorian jewel in Preston’s crown there’s a lot of work going on to restore the Miller Arcade to its former glory.

These pictures show what it was like inside before the builders moved in as they work to convert the top floors into flats, a restaurant and roof terrace.

An urban explorer, known only as ScrappyNW, gained access to the roof space to see how it looked.
