Chester (pic heavy)

We headed into Chester to walk the walls and so that Mel could spend the day with her BF.
After lunch in the Cathedral grounds off we went.

Our starting point was the Eastgate Clock we had planned to walk clockwise around the walls but the section just after the clock has collapsed so is currently closed

Looking towards Morgan's Mount

The Water Tower

Caleb refused to go back in his buggy after posing for pics so he was helped along by Auntie Mel and yours truely (that's Mel's BF btw and not some random guy in the pic)

The Castle

We ended up at the River Dee which was the plan all along
At times the weir flows backwards when the conditions are right, one of these days I'll be there to see it (they do let you know when it's going to happen)

The suspension bridge over the river

We headed back to the city centre and the bus through the Roman Gardens

This Hypercoust is reconstructed from pieces found during a dig at the Bath Building

Glad you had a good time in Chester, it's my favourite shopping place. I'm only 25 mins away and go there regularly, although I have yet to do the wall walk ... shame on me!
