Fishergate Postern Tower – roof survey images

The 400 year old roof and tiles at Fishergate Postern Tower are in need of some maintenance and TLC.  In preparation and planning for any roof repairs which may be necessary a detailed aerial survey of the roof has just been commissioned and completed.

On Thursday 23rd January Sky Filming, York  were on site using a drone and a camera on a pole to capture detailed high resolution images and videos of the state of the roof.

A short aerial video is available HERE

The following images are a few pictures taken with the drone camera. (NOTE – they are low resolution for the web site)

A 3-D model has also been produced from the images recorded and can be seen at     https://skfb.ly/6QtzR

The 3-D model is also available as a PDF file but is slower to operate.     It can be seen HERE
