MAIL picture editor Neil Barker took to the sky to capture this stunning shot of Swadlincote town centre.

At its heart is the £15 million Pipeworks retail development, its white roofs glinting in the spring sun.

To the right is Morrisons supermarket, a rectangular slab sporting a more weather-beaten look, and, further right, High Street and The Delph.

Alexandra Road runs across the top of the picture, linking houses and shops with the unmistakable kiln at Sharpe’s Pottery Museum.

The bottom of the picture features the Coppice Side roundabout and, to the bottom right, Hill Street Baptist Church.
