365-265 Chester City Queens Park Dee Bridge at Dusk UK

365-265 Chester City Queens Park Dee Bridge at Dusk UK
Queen's Park suspension bridge (for pedestrians. A great spot where the walker can see up the Dee river and over to the stone road crossing. Queens Park Suspension Bridge, links the walled city centre and the Groves with the Queens Park area on the southern bank. This was built in 1923 to replace an earlier construction. It is painted white and lit at night.

The river was why the Romans came to build their fort here and the area below the city of Chester (now called The Roodee), which is now occupied by the racecourse was where the harbour was located. Over time the river silted and Liverpool became the port of choice for sea going vessels.

Near to this pedestrian bridge, north of town, is the Groves. A paved promenade complete with bandstand, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Here there are river cruises or rowing boats to hire.
