Areas we cover throughout Chester and the surrounding area;
Founded by the Romans in AD 79, Chester is a historic city with a fascinating past. A civilian settlement grew around what was a military base back then, which probably originated from trade with the fortress. The fortress in Chester was much larger than other fortresses built in the Roman province of Britannia and was originally intended to become the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Superior. There was a civilian amphitheatre, which was built in the 1st century. It is the largest known military amphitheatre in Britain, seating between 8,000 and 10,000 people. The Minerva Shrine in the Roman quarry is the only rock cut Roman shrine still in situ in Britain.
Chester played a large part in the Industrial Revolution which began in the latter part of the 18th century, with its close proximity to the Shropshire Union Canal and two railway stations in the town itself. Modern day Chester has moved on quite a bit since then, displaying many new buildings and business parks around the city and surrounding areas. Chester’s economy is largely based in the service industry, with tourism, retail, public administration and financial services. Aviation features heavily too with Airbus being based just outside of Chester in Broughton, providing great employment opportunities to many of the residents of Chester and surrounding areas.
Chester is positioned well in terms of transport links, with many major roads running through or just outside the city. These include the M53 motorway towards the Wirral and Liverpool and the M56 motorway towards Manchester. Other main routes include the A55 and A483 roads which provide great access to the North, Middle and South of Wales. Chester is also synonymous with sport too, with Horse Racing and Football being the two that the city is most famous for. The racecourse at Chester is the oldest racecourse still in use in England and is one of the smallest but liveliest courses in Britain. It is also one of the only racecourses in Britain where spectators can actually watch the horse racing from the inside of the track, as well as the outside. Unfortunately, the city’s local football club Chester City FC, went out of business in 2010. However, not long after going out of business, a new club was formed called Chester FC. They are currently members of the National League, or the conference as it was formally known, and play their home matches at their old stomping ground The Deva Stadium.
