PostHeaderIcon Chester - river and canal

Chester lies on the Dee river that rises near Bala in North Wales. It snakes eastward flowing through Llangollen and Wrexham before turning north and flowing through Chester on it's way to the Irish Sea at Queensferry.

Formerly an important contributer to the importance of Chester as a port it now contributes to the cities leisure facilities.

On the northern side of the city centre is a deep cutting for the Shropshire Union canal on it's way from Ellesmere to the Mersey at Ellesmere Port. Tower Wharf is a canal pool with a boat yard.
