Making a move to keep people in Bath city centre
Visitors and residents have been enjoying a giant chess set which has been installed in Bath city centre.
The set in Kingston Parade, outside the Tourist Information Centre, has been put out so everyone from a Grand Master to a complete novice can try their hand at the game.
All the pieces are put into place each morning and the board comes in the shape of a super-sized mat.
The game has been organised by the Bath Business Improvement District (BID) and its manager Andrew Cooper

He said: "It's the summer holiday and the large chess set is something that little bit different to keep people in the city centre.
"The Bath BID is all about finding new ways to animate the city's streets and this certainly does that."
The chess set sits in an appropriate spot, because it lies in the shadow of Bath Abbey – where real life kings have sat side-by-side with bishops.
If the super-sized chess set gets the seal of approval from shoppers and tourists, then more games could be on their way to the city.
