He took the pictures while on an evening stroll through the town, spotting some festive yarn-bombing along the way.

Ben said: “I’ve photographed Bury during different seasons, but there has to be something particularly magical about doing it with a landscape of lights that you just can’t help but get into the festive spirit from.

"In travelling extensively with my work, I can often overlook what is on my own doorstep.

"Seeing Bury lit up as I did taking these photos really gave me another opportunity to appreciate just how stunning and picturesque my home town is, whatever the time of day or season in the year.”
