City Walls (Chester)
The City Walls are a most impressive feature of the ancient city of Chester.
Only a small length near the River Dee is missing, and otherwise the walls describe a complete circuit of the town centre. In this respect Chester is unique in this country.
The Romans built the original walls, but these were replaced in the mediaeval period, and carefully kept in a good state of repair ever since.
There are a number of gates, including the Eastgate, above which is the famous Jubilee Clock, and several towers, including King Charles' Tower, Bonewaldesthorne's Tower and the Goblin Tower, and another interesting feature is the Recorder's Steps.
