SJ4065 : Chester Castle Square and Queen Victoria

Chester Castle Square and Queen Victoria
Chester Castle Square and Queen Victoria
The statue of Queen Victoria can be seen surveying this amazing sunset from her pedestal on Chester Castle Square. The Castle Square, whose surrounding buildings were formerly home to the Cheshire Regiment, is sometimes used as a parade ground, but for most of the time it is a car park. The building to the left used to be the Officers Mess, and other buildings are still used by the judiciary. The impressive castle buildings were designed by Thomas Harrison, built between 1785 and 1822, and are worthy of some daytime photos - without the cars.
