Renovations to one of Chester’s premier shopping rows have been finished.

Replacement gutters, installation of a safety walkway and roof repairs were needed to St Michael’s Row in Grosvenor Shopping Centre.

Businesses had been trading as normal during the work, but scaffolding down the pathway was cleared on October 26 in time for Christmas trade to start coming in.

Further approval from the council planning department was needed for the walkway and handrail system.
