WATCH: Take a trip over Worcester Cathedral

STUNNING drone footage from over Worcester Cathedral has been released following an insurance survey at the iconic city landmark.

Ecclesiastical Insurance has released the footage which provides a breath-taking view of the Cathedral and surrounding area.

The use of drone technology to inspect the cathedral’s tower means the cathedral will not have to pay for costly scaffolding and can now plan the maintenance work which is needed.

Commenting on the use of the technology, Val Floy, chief operating officer at Worcester Cathedral said: “We were conscious that parts of the tower needed to be inspected but the costs and logistical challenges of doing this meant we had not been able to do so.

“The imagery captured by the drone will enable us to do an initial assessment so we can prioritise future work and inspections.”
