Chester City Walls to create leading European heritage trail
Two thousand years of Chester’s rich and colourful history have been earmarked to create one of Europe’s finest heritage trails.
Chester’s famous City Walls – the only complete circuit in the UK – have recently been given an asset value £0.5 billion….. but could well be worth much more to the city in the future.
Established and built by the Romans, they have been repaired, extended and adapted by successive generations ever since, the massive symbol of defence eventually became a fashionable walkway for promenading Georgians.
And when the PORTICO co-operative European Project completes its imaginative restoration, improvement and interpretation works of the Walls and Towers their amazing stories are expected to attract a much wider audience.
For more information about this conservation project see the Cheshire West and Chester Council website.
