Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wall

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wall.

As the challenge is singular I decided to go with a single photo of a wall with a long and interesting history.

This is Phoenix Tower, it stands on the northeast corner of the City Walls in Chester, Cheshire, England. It is thought to have been built in the 13th century but it’s what it was built onto that I find more interesting.

The Chester City Walls were built by the Romans in the 2nd century before being added to and extended in the 12th century. This section of the wall contains both Roman and Medieval masonry.

Very interesting – I’m off to Chester at the end of next week so I’ll check it out. We’re going on a three week walk/Drive/Fly/Boat trip from Chester to Harlech Castle.
