Completed this walk yesterday with Miss Mahjong and Plusone.

I have never done this walk before and absolutely loved it. I know that many of you have probably done this walk before but for those who have not, I recommend it. Sooo much History.

Maybe a re-visit? A Wiki walk for the warmer months, T.C?

Saveaway/ Bus-pass day?

Info:

Chester city walls consist of a defensive structure built to protect the city of Chester in Cheshire, England. Their construction was started by the Romans when they established the fortress of Deva Victrix between 70 and 80 AD. It originated with a rampart of earth and turf surmounted by a wooden palisade. From about 100 AD they were reconstructed using sandstone, but were not completed until over 100 years later. Following the Roman occupation nothing is known about the condition of the walls until Æthelflæd refounded Chester as a burgh in 907. The defences were improved, although the precise nature of the improvement is not known. After the Norman conquest, the walls were extended to the west and the south to form a complete circuit of the medieval city. The circuit was probably complete by the middle of the 12th century.

Maintenance of the structure of the walls was an ongoing concern. They were further fortified before the Civil War, and were damaged during the war. Following this they ceased to have a defensive purpose, and were developed for leisure and recreation. The walls are now a major tourist attraction, and form an almost complete circuit of the former medieval city, with a total walkway length of 2.95 kilometres (1.8 mi). Upkeep and repair of the walls continues to be a problem.

And.....last lot of pics.

I'd be up for that too, maybe with a stop off for a nice refreshing pint on the way. But in the warmer weather please

Did you follow the arrows in the pavement?
I didn't know about them until i was shown one time, and they guide you around chester, and the walls. Its a brilliant idea as your likeva child hunting lol

The cathedral with its free entrance banner is a con. You can get as far as the shop, but to enter the main cathedral its a minimum donation of £3, that can work out expensive.

Following the old city walls is great.
It is a great day out.

Thanks for sharing your pictures Rude

Used to be my daily lunch walk when I worked there 27 years ago. Been going the same chippy in South View Road for 27 years and its still the same owners. I worked for a construction company and we won a job to take down and repair the walls in several places. We had to take the precise level and position of every stone and rebuild it in same position. City architects were always buzzing around in case we found anything in the rubble in fill between the walls. Nice city to work in except on race days. Great cheese shop as well Grommit
