Preston Docks and Marina

 

Cold and grey today, had a wander around Preston Docks.  A chance to try out some of the stuff from the photography course.  Not sure if they all work, but hey it’s fun having a go!

St Walburge's spire, rising to 309 feet (94 m) is the dominant landmark in Preston and is one of the tallest structures of any sort in Lancashire. After Salisbury and Norwich Cathedrals, it is third tallest spire in England, and is the tallest on a parish church.  I’ve actually climbed to the top of this and magnificent views are to be had, looking across to Winter Hill and Darwen Tower.
