Chester City Walls

City Walls project timeline

Since 2009, the Council has spent around £6m to ensure the Walls can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Since we took over care of the City Walls, many restoration projects have taken place. This is to ensure the ancient monument is cared for and well preserved. To-date, around £6m has been spent to ensure the City Walls can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Other small-scale projects have included:

  • June to November 2009: Extensive vegetation removal to entire wall circuit
  • November 2011 to October 2012: Tower accesses installed at Newgate Bridge
  • July to October 2012: New viewing window installed in Thimbleby's Tower
  • September 2016 to April 2017: Rock ledge/outcrop stabilisation and masonry repairs to Barnaby's Tower
