Two vacant units - Festival Place
Two vacant units - Festival Place
Taken on a Saturday but deliberately avoiding people. Not so difficult given the limit number of footfalls in this part of the complex.
Town centres in 2008-20

I am sure there are many towns across the UK which are suffering from the economic policies being pursued. These images, I hope, will act as an historic record of how tough times were and how so many businesses came and went. And, sadly, who thrived.
More recent images could also reflect the impact of the post Brexit vote. When you pause to count the number of vacant sites it is really quite surprising.
