We used the Eastgate Clock as a starting point for our circumnavigation of the walls. The Clock itself is in excellent condition and was very popular with the visitors we saw, for photo opportunities, also provided good views of Eastgate Street & Foregate Street.

The clock mechanism was replaced after a full upgrading of the clock was completed in October 2015. It is beautiful and admired by many thousands of tourists and of course we who live in Chester!
