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.

UPDATE: I've continued to add this shared description to images that may also be showing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic which started to have an impact on town centre trading from about June 2020 onwards. In the early months of the pandemic businesses were just closed during 'lock down'.
