Chester City Wall
SJ 405-665

Thanks to early 18th century restoration, the city wall is now intact and the circuit of two miles can be walked. The north and east walls follow the Roman fortress walls and before 1121 the Medieval walls were extended the west and south to include the castle. The most impressive towers are the King Charles Tower, where King Charles I watched the Battle of Rowton Heath and the 14th century round Water Tower at the end of a spur wall.
