The Round Tower

The Round Tower is another of Chester's forgotten towers. It is located near the Bridgegate and dates from medieval times. The tower has no internal rooms or doors and is just a look out platform probably built to watch for invaders coming up the river. The upper parts of the tower were demolished in the 18th Century.
