Chester city wall. Nov 22, 2017
The City Walls in Chester, Cheshire England, were first built by the Romans from 79AD. A complete circuit of the wall is about 2 miles. The Roman name for Chester was Deva Vivtrix. Medieval times saw the extention of the wall. The walls further strenghthened before the Civil War. Today the wall is well maintained and are a major tourist attraction. The exact length is 2.95 kilometres (1.8 miles ). There are good views. I accessed at Eastgate Clock and walked in a anti clockwise direction,passing the back of the Cathedral and Falconry centre. Squirrels play in land near the wall. Some parts of the wall are under repair and i had to divert for a short stretch.(2017) I passed the castle and Chester Race Course, looking down on the course. A short distance further on i saw boats on the river Dee, then back to the Eastgate Clock were i started. I noticed one tearoom on the wall and one at the side of wall. In the city centre plenty of cafes and pubs. Just off the wall,down some steps to St.Johns Street ,is the Methodist Centre for snacks tea coffee etc. From the wall can be seen the hills of Wales.--The wall walk is a pleasant walk on a dry day but no shelter if raining. Access is by steps, short stretchs available for wheelchairs.. The wall is well maintained Access is FREE.
