A newly released video of the local university campus gives us a good excuse to feature a few aerial videos of the town!
Glyndwr University have released the below video of an aerial tour of their Mold Road campus, recorded via a ‘drone’.

Anyone with similar videos please get in touch and we will add them in to this article!
