The Agricola Tower, Chester Castle
The Agricola Tower, Chester Castle
Looking southwest from near the gateway to the castle square. The Agricola Tower is the oldest part of Chester Castle that still exists. The upper floor houses the Norman chapel of St Mary de Castro and has some fine, recently discovered, ceiling paintings. It is believed the tower was refaced in the time of Thomas Harrison in the 18th century. The building is in the care of English Heritage and is often open - but check before travelling.
