Chester Through Time Summary

Chester Through Time by Paul Hurley

Chester, the county town of Cheshire was better known as Deva Victrix by the Roman soldiers who were based here. This was the Roman name given to the city fortress when it was built in the AD 70s. The city is steeped in history, one of its most distinguishing features is The Rows, galleried walkways running along four streets and meeting at The Cross. Chester is also famous for the walls that surround the city and provide an uninterrupted circular walk for the many visitors. During this walk you may gaze down at the ancient amphitheatre, the largest of its kind uncovered in Great Britain. Pass the famous cathedral and the tower from which Charles I observed the defeat of his army. Then back into the city where alterations have taken place but this has been done sympathetically and in keeping with the general antiquity of the surrounding buildings. You can see why this city is one of the most visited in Britain.
