Earlier this year, this article was released, revealing just how many commercial properties within Chester were standing empty. Although this has changed since, with new shops moving into the empty premises, it's still very clear when walking through Chester city centre that many shops are still empty.
The biggest shop to disappear from Chester this year was British Home Stores (BHS), leaving a huge gap on the main high street. The above images reveal how the store was left, just before it was boarded up. Looking inside the empty store without any people, any goods or even staff members makes this property appear almost like a ghost in the highsteet, hinting at what used to be here. All the lights are left on, some posters and signs still remain and elevators are an invitation to explore further.
