Eastgate and Eastgate Clock

In the heart of Chester city centre is this famous clock. Opened to the public in 1899 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s 80th birthday. It stands on the site of the original entrance to the Roman fortress. Chester has one of the best preserved Roman walls in Britain. The full circuit of the wall around the centre of Chester is 2 miles long and well worth the wall along the top of the wall. There are many black and white timber buildings in Chester. The one on the left of this photograph is a great example built in 1395. It is one of the most impressive things to see in the city.
