Review of "chester meadows, Chester"
Back home again after a couple of weeks in the Pyrenees
While in Chester on a sunny morning I had a stroll in the Meadows.
These are. Water meadows which can flood at times are on the south side of the river Dee in Chester.
I accessed the meadows from Chester town over the Old Dee Bridge a bit nearer the meadows is the Suspension Bridge but I thought I would prefer walking over the Old Dee Bridge.
I suspect you can enter the meadows from the houses on the opposite side of the meadows to the river.
I walked along the riverside past the few buildings along a good path under the suspension bridge out the other side and walk on a little till I come to a gate information boards by the side of the gate giving the alternate name of the meadows as Earl’s Eye Meadows .
From here I walk along the river Dee on the edge of the Meadows. There is a footpath along the river past the meadows for a couple of miles to the next bridge. (I did not walk all this way)
There are a couple of paths across the meadows. To some degree these paths seem suitable for baby buggy or disabled scooter.The meadows are open grassland with a small woodland area some trees around the edges.
While I was there I noticed a few people dog walking and just generally enjoying the open space.
This area appears to be an area for wildlife, suitable for bird's butterflies and other insects. I was only there for an hour or so do not know what is present but looked fair territory.
After beginning my walk in the Meadows I came across a shed for canoes and boats. Also a school group were on the river Dee learning how to canoe (Its amazing just retired from working in a school and wherever I visit there's groups of school children)
Looking across at the other side of the Dee to where I was. The houses looked posh, grand large garden's and riverside mooring's (a bit like Henley)
~~Would I recommend ?
Yes a pleasant place to walk
