Chester




Set off forChester in Cheshire early this morning, about 40 minutes drive south-west of Wigan. Chester is a large market-town, the largest walled-city in Britain and fairly oozes history from Roman through Tudor period. Grabbed a walking-tour map and propelled myself around the inner area for a few hours, taking in the Roman Amphitheatre, anciente ande olde shoppes - especially those running in two tiers along some of the main streets, plus meandering around the pathway atop of the enclosing walls.


I had an interesting chat with the proprietor of the Cartoon Gallery (who draws for Punch) about Ronald Searle, Ralph Steadman etc.

Picked up some books by Foer and Coe, plus new CD single from Antony and the Johnsons: Hope there's someone. If you haven't read Coe's What a Carve Up then GO, BUY and READ. One of my favourite novels of the 1990s.
