ABC Wednesday - M is for the Millennium Festival Trail in Chester


I wasn't sure what I was going to post today but searching old photographs I came across this plague in the street.

The Millennium Trail is a city walk covering forty of Chester's most important buildings. Starting at the town hall this two hour walk covers the City Centre and parts of the City Walls.


This stop was #21 at the top of Bridge Street.

My other M posts today are Man up a Tree at Hyde Daily Photo ~~ Mule Spinners at Old Hyde ~~ M&S at Sithenah.

To visit other ABC M posts go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place.

  7. arne Chester is 40 miles west of Manchester near the border with Wales.

    Chester means a Roman camp and indeed there are a lot of excavations going one there. Chester is one the river Dee and its roman name is DEVA

    Manchester had the roman name MANCASTRIUM The "Man" bit will refer to some General or Lord and not specifically the male gender.

  12. My M is on different trails, but I have been on paths of a similar sort ot yours today. Of course, our town is doing well to be a bit over a century--no millenium stuff here.

  14. My mum is a Cestrian, she was born within the city walls - not many around these days as all the hospitals are outside

  15. That is so neat! I love guided walking tours like that (there is one in Boston): they give you a great oversight to the area before you look for the details. I have a lot of catching up with you to do!
