Neil Roland - Gallery 57
Lancashire (inc. Preston, Leigh, Heywood & North Lancashire)

This is just part of a collection of artworks I have created from all over the county of Lancashire, the county of my birth. I can blend Lancashire images so that they make a personalised artwork, incorporating just those areas which are meaningful to an individual - indeed blending with other areas across the United Kingdom and seen in other galleries on this site. Please just ask.
