Chester on the river Dee

May 7, 2017

Chester on the river Dee was founded by the Romans in 79AD and is one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain. The Romans exited the city in 410AD when the Roman Empire was unfolding. In 616AD the Saxons took over Chester and strengthened the walls of the city to protect against the invading Danes. Much of the architecture today in Chester is medieval.




Today we walked along the canal that was built here to transport goods during the Industrial Revolution. Today the system of lochs on the canals are used by pleasure barges that travel throughout Wales and England.
