About Us

This walk along the canal, led by Stewart Shuttleworth on behalf of Chester Civic Trust, will look at the remains of the industrial heritage in the area. It will explore how, with the building of the canal in the eighteenth century, a concentration of industries grew up alongside it and some of the earlier riverside industry migrated across. Now, some aspects of this industrial heritage have been regenerated into modern developments: the walk looks at corn mills, warehouses, remains of the lead works and hydraulic engineering. The industry will be discussed in the context of canal transport. Meet outside the Lock Keeper Pub, Canal Side, Frodsham Street for this 90-minute walk, which is fully accessible, with care along the towpath. Book in advance for this free walk.

Throughout Chester Heritage Festival there will be an associated exhibition about Chester at Work at Lache Library. On Friday 28 June there is an opportunity to meet the author, Geoff Pickard of the book `Chester Leadworks` at Chester Visitor Information Centre.
