The Cross Chester

The Cross is the ancient centre of the city of Chester in north west England and stands at the intersection of Chester's four main shopping streets: Bridge Street, Watergate Street, Northgate Street and Eastgate Street.

The Cross marks the location of the ancient Roman Principia, the military HQ of the Roman forces in Deva. The Cross or High Cross dates originally from the 14th century but the vicissitudes of history have meant that the present red sandstone, crown-topped cross was built in 1949.

There are daily proclamations at 12 noon at The Cross by Chester's Town Crier and the monument has become a popular meeting and hanging out point.

The Cross in Chester can be visited along with nearby Dewa Roman Experience, Chester's Roman Amphitheater, St John's Church, the Meadows, Grosvenor Park, Chester Cathedral, the River Dee and the Rows.
