Walks Around Chester and the Dee Estuary

Walks Around Chester and the Dee Estuary

by: David Berry
This book contains 26 walks exploring the beautiful Roman city of Chester and both sides of the stunning Dee estuary lying between the Wirral and the North Wales coast. Learn the fascinating history of the city's past as a major port and the fluctuating fortunes of other estuary ports over the centuries.

Walk along the famous city walls, by the river, along the canal or railway path. Enjoy the great estuary views from cliff tops, stroll along the beach or through woodland. Cross historic bridges, visit Nature Reserves, Heritage and Country Parks, old forgotten quays, and ancient castles. Walk Chester's Riverside Promenade, sections of the Wales Coast Path or the popular Wirral Way.

The walks vary in length from 2 to 7.5 miles. Each walk entry begins with a short overview description giving an indication of difficulty and features plus the starting point including grid reference. Detailed route finding instructions follow in numbered paragraphs relating to numbered points on an associated sketch map. There is a summary table of the walks which gives starting place, distance, grade, time, and any links with other walks.
