A video has been released showing historic buildings in Windsor being filmed from the sky by a drone.
Filming was carried out by a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) owned by Tuffin Ferraby Taylor (TFT), a property and construction consultancy company, for a roof survey on behalf of the Royal Borough.
Windsor Castle, the Windsor Guildhall and the Theatre Royal Windsor feature prominently in the video, which has been uploaded to video-sharing website Vimeo.
Seth Love-Jones, partner at TFT, said: "Our UAV's inspection relayed high quality footage of every inch of the roofs.
"Its ability to peer into previously inaccessible areas has enabled TFT to comment on their condition, highlight areas of concern and provide a complete report for the Royal Borough."
The information provided from the footage will enable the council to ensure the buildings in the town are properly maintained.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
