We set off at 8am on Sunday to walk around the city walls which was about two miles. Here we were on a level with the rooftops and were able to photograph some of the details featured on buildings. The Victorian clock which stands on the bridge over the street was very elegant, with it’s gold leaf and rich red paintwork.

This is one of the weatherworn sandstone towers that was the easiest look-out tower to photograph. I liked the lifelike sculpture of the baby Elephant standing in the street, also these fish and rat clay figures on the chimneypots. From the walls we could see the River Dee, part of Wales in the distance, Chester racecourse and down over the canal where it passes through a deep rock cutting. After that we needed some refreshment so we sought out a Wetherspoons for coffee and breakfast rolls.
