Chester’s Buildings Brought To Life With New Project

If you’ve ever wandered around one of the UK’s historic towns or cities and wondered what stories the buildings could tell you, you can wonder no more, if you head to Chester at least.

The Cheshire city’s buildings have been given the opportunity to share some of their tales thanks to a new heritage project that uses mobile phone technology to allow people to interact with the buildings, the Chester Chronicle reported.

So far 26 walls around Chester have been given a voice, with the stories told by the likes of ITV Granada star Lucy Meacock, BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin, and former MP and TV presenter Gyles Brandreth.

The Talking Walls of Chester initiative was commissioned by the CH1ChesterBID (business improvement district), with the aim to help both locals and visitors experience the city centre in a different way.

BID manager at CH1ChesterBID Carl Critchlow explained that Chester’s history is one of the main draws for visitors, adding that they wanted to find “a modern way for visitors - as well as local residents - to experience it”.

He continued: “There are so many fascinating stories we’ve unearthed throughout the city centre and Talking Walls of Chester brings them all to life.”

Among the city’s top attractions are its city walls, which are the most complete in Britain, as well as the country’s oldest racecourse and its largest Roman amphitheatre. The cathedral, which is one of the walls featured in the project, is 1,000 years old and undoubtedly has some incredible stories to tell.
