River Dee, Chester City Walls and the Dukes Drive 2023
9 people attending
21 places left
An easy walk along the River Dee at Chester including a walk round the city walls.
We will be meeting at the River Dee at Eccleston an interesting village in the Duke of Westminster’s estate. We will walk into Chester along the riverside path for about 4 miles, passing Earls Eye Meadows and crossing the river on the Queens Park Suspension Bridge.
We will stop for lunch at the Groves, a delightful riverside area. There will be an opportunity to go to a local cafe for anyone who hasn’t brought a packed lunch. After lunch we will walk round the city walls and will see lots of Roman remains, the cathedral and the famous racecourse. For those who don’t want to walk round the walls there will be time for shopping instead.
We will then cross the River again on the Old Dee bridge and pass through a local park before walking along the Dukes Drive back to Eccleston and our starting point.
If you are planning to use public transport I'm sure it will be possible for someone to meet you at the railway or bus station.
Don't worry if all the places have gone, sign up anyway and you will go on the waiting list. Then if someone pulls out you will get a place.
