  • St. Werburgh Street, Town Hall and Cathedral Gardens, Chester

    St. Werburgh Street, Town Hall and Cathedral Gardens, Chester

SE51 St. Werburgh Street, Town Hall and Cathedral Gardens, Chester. Price: 11.00

Founded nearly 2000 years ago by the Romans, Chester boats some of the richest archaeological and architectural treasures in Britain. It is the only city in England to have preserved its Roman and medieval walls in their entirety and today they provide a circular 2 mile circuit walk offering great views of the city and surrounding countryside. The medieval town once flourished as a trading post until silting of the Dee during the 15th century brought decline in trade prosperity. The beautiful sandstone cathedral dates from the 14th century but perhaps the source of the city's distinctive character comes from the black and white timbered buildings and galleried tiers of shops known as The Rows.

Gracious stuccoed house for William, Duke of Clarence, by John Nash on the site of his old lodgings. It was finished in 1828.

He tried St. James's Palace for a time, but found there was so little room that he and his Queen had to move all their books and letters out of the rooms before levees. So a passage to connect the palace with Clarence House was built. On King William's death in 1837 Princess Augusta, George III's daughter, took the house until her own death three years later.

The most splendid surviving example of a Cistercian Monastery, and also the most beautifully sited. It bestrides a half mile reach of Skeldale, between the quarried face of Rye Bank and the well wooded south side of the river. Its founders were a handful of Benedictines determined to establish a more cultured way of life, discovering the site in 1132. Because clear water sprang from the sheltering rocks, they named their new abode, Fountains. A seven storey tower rising 170 feet dominates the site, the creation of Abbot Huby in the 15th century. At the Dissolution, Fountains was the richest Cistercian prize to fall to Henry VIII.
