this equally atmospheric shot.
On the left is the Balti Spice takeaway, once one of the town's most attractive shops, and next to that is the part-time Middlewich branch of NatWest. Then comes Tesco Express, oddly competing mainly with the Tesco Supermarket on Southway, just a matter of yards away. Pineland now occupies the remaining part of the long low building which started life in the early 1970s as the 'Co-operative Superstore'.
Centre right, The Vaults provides an oasis of warmth and light in the early evening gloom, and to its right we can see some of the town's Christmas lights receding into the distance along St Michael's Way.
