From the Stanway, Dedham, Ardleigh and beyond here are some incredible pictures of the Colchester area from the sky.

We had a photographer take a trip on a plane to capture some images of north Essex.

In our third instalment we are in Colchester viewing Stanway including homes, the retail park and Sainsbury's.

There are also pictures of Dedham and Ardleigh.

Then it is on to Mistley, Manningtree and Lawford.

Our snapper also ventured out to Frinton taking in the seafront, golf club and Kirby.

All the pictures of the Essex skyline have featured in the Daily Gazette.
