Trips & Adventures – 5 April 2018
As it was a bright sunny day we walked from the train station at Chester to the “Old Queen’s Head” in the city centre, where we had our meal – and very nice it was too – fish and chips or chicken, ham and leek pie.
There were a few famous people in Chester and on the city walls above the clock we spotted Spock from Star Trek as well as Chewbacca from Star Wars.
