I think you need to know dome of the background to appreciate the bridge. It is well worth a look and a walk over. We saw the Clifton suspension bridge, then Shrewsburys suspension bridge which the Chester bridge is linked to. It is slightly larger...More

This is a truly lovely early 20th Century pedestrian bridge stretching over the River Dee. We live near to Chester and so have crossed the bridge hundreds of times and it still doesn’t lose its attraction. The view down the river to the Old Dee...More

This is a picturesque footbridge spanning the lovely River Dee. It provides a great vantage point for photographs, or for just watching the river life go by.

It's a good looking bridge, what more can I say, worth going to see and taking a walk over if you're in the area.

Its the ornate bridge over the river Dee called the Queens Park Bridge, splendid bit of engineering and still in very useable condition, ornate items on it are splendid, well worth a viewing.
