New 3D laser scans are showing Craggs Mill as never before.Advertisement
The Grade II listed building off Moor Lane is being redeveloped by local entrepreneur Richard Porter.
3D images and a flythrough video have been created by Craig Greaves from The CAD Room Ltd. If you can’t see the video below, visit the Craggs Mill Facebook page to view it.
Craig said: “The images are screenshots taken of the Pointcloud data collected using a Leica P40 scanstation.
“The Laser Scanner uses lasers to measure millions of data points in just minutes. These data points are used to create an accurate, three-dimensional model of everything that the beam reflects off.
“HDR imagery can then be taken by the scanner and the colour from these images at each location can be applied to the corresponding data point.”
In August, Richard asked the local community for ideas of how Craggs Mill could be brought back into use.
As a result, the building is set to be transformed into a multi-level community hub.
One of the community groups expected to join is Preston Here for Humanity.
Richard said: “Plans are pushing ahead to make the garage suitable for use for the CIC Preston Here for Humanity, and we should have some more news soon on acceptance.”

Local photographers Mark McLoughlin Photography and RJ Imagery also recently visited Craggs Mill to document the development. Their photos can be viewed on Pixieset.
