Visit Chester

Chester became the largest port in the north west of England in the Medieval period. Today you can still see evidence of the Medieval period, the stone narrow bridge across the River Dee to Handbridge was the only river crossing into Chester. This was the lowest bridging point of the River Dee until the new Victorian bridge of 1839. Chester Cathedral and the city walls we see today were built in this period. It reflects the wealth of Chester at the time.
