Photographer's Note

Chester is situated on the River Dee, on the border with Wales, and is one of the best preserved walled cities in the United Kingdom. The city of Chester was founded as a fort, known as Deva, by the Romans in AD 79 and today one can see many ruins from the era. It is an hour's drive from the Sefton Coast and close to Liverpool. Daniel Craig, the new James Bond was born here in Chester.

Chester being on the border of Wales and England was the scene for many battles through history. Today Cestrians are often perceived (partly-jokingly) as being 'anti-Welsh'. The Town Hall clock does not face west towards Wales, so as not to give the Welsh the "time of day".
