Southend High Street

Went for a walk down Southend High Street yesterday for the first time in over a year. This is where you can really see how the recession has hit our town. It was quite depressing, closed down shops and those that were open had very few people in them or were slashing prices.

Don't know if it was worse for me as I didn't see it happen gradually, does anyone else feel the same when they go there that it appears a shadow of it's former self? I was actually quite saddened by it and couldn't get away quick enough.
