Today, we ambled around Chester as there was a really old path hubby wanted me to see. The moss covered path was just inside the walls and around corner from the turbulent River Dee. Apparently, there's an old law that says if a Welsh person is found within the city walls after dark they may be "shot". Saying that, we have had a meal in Chester at night and lived to tell the tale.

In town, a class of young children were learning about the Romans. Armed with gold coloured shields the youngsters followed the battle clad Centurion (employee of the Grosvenor Museum) through the Roman Gardens

It appears that the gardens are on the site of a clay pipe factory, which manufactured smoking bowls from around 1781 until 1917. Factory foundations have been found alongside the walls.

More on Chester later...
