Chester was founded as a Roman city, it lies on the river Dee on the border with Wales and is the county town of Cheshire. The city centre attracts shoppers from across North Wales as well as the county of Cheshire and gets very busy at weekends. It is also a popular tourist destination. My most recent visit was a couple of days after Christmas.

1. After Christmas, the sales.


2. Narrow street leading to the cathedral.


3. An assortment of doorways. Note the boot scrapers which were necessary to remove the worst of the mud before streets were paved.


4.


5.


6.


7. All in white.


8. Christmas decorations, Grosvenor Shopping Centre.


9. Football hats.


10. Three Old Arches is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. The stone frontage at the street and row levels is considered to be the earliest shop front still surviving in England. During the 20th century part of the building was used by William Jones, a grocer. In the 1960s the business was taken over by the department store of Owen Owen, but this closed in 1999. The ground floor continues to be used as a shop.


11. The "City of Chester" on this shop is interesting, possibly a former council building?
