Chester: Historic English City




Chester is the capital city of the county of Cheshire, in the North-West of England; although at one point in Chester's long & ancient history, it lay within the Welsh kingdom.
Chester was settled by the Romans in AD 79 and became one of three main Roman military bases in Britain. There are suggestions that it may have been intended to be the capital of Roman Britain, rather than Londinium ( London) due to the size of its fortifications and its ampitheatre. It was a major port.

The Saxons and the Danes, as well as the Normans all have history in the city.And much of it was rebuilt in Victorian times at the time of the industrial revolution.Chester remains one of Britain's best preserved walled cities - with most sections of the wall being original.

Modern day Chester is 20 miles from the city of Liverpool; 40 miles from the city of Manchester, and less than 8 miles from the Welsh border. It sits on the River Dee, and has a population of approximately 330.000 ( wider city region).

I am going to take you on a walk around the city walls:

Then back home, to Liverpool, over the Runcorn suspension bridge
