Chester


Chester's moorings were too busy to stop when we passed through on the canal, so today we visited by road. It has been a lovely sunny day so a good time to circumnavigate the city wall.

Chester city's wall, started by the Romans, was added to and developed over the centuries until the English Civil War rendered the defences obsolete, since then they have been maintained as a tourist attraction.

Good view of the racecourse from the wall.

A spur wall to the Water Tower built to protect Chester port.
