Flower Delivery to Handbridge with Clare Florist

The district of Handbridge is located in the city of Chester, which is in Cheshire County, England. It lies right along the River Dee’s southern banks. This district was first settled way back during the Iron Age. However, major development didn’t start here until the Romans lost control over Britain. Then the city ended up growing too big for its own walls. The main building material used by the workers was red sandstone. You will find that many buildings in Chester were originally built with this material. Handbridge eventually became a prime location for salmon fishing. With the River Dee running through the area, this creates the perfect opportunity for local fisherman to catch salmon for business purposes.

The Roman settlement came to Handbridge around 74 A.D.  They were responsible for constructing Fort Deva, which has become the modern day centre of Chester city. Since most of the district lies on sandstone, it was easy for buildings to be constructed with this material. But it was still a relatively small city throughout the Roman era. After the Romans moved out of Britain, Handbridge was left in total disrepair. There is little evidence of any major activity taking place during the hundreds of years after the Romans left. Historians know that Chester was attacked quite often by Viking raiders. However, the Domesday Book of 1086 shows the site as having three separate manors; Royal Handbridge, Netherleigh and Overleigh. The book reveals that constant repairs had taken place as well as to the river crossing, which would later be called the Old Dee Bridge. 

In modern times, Handbridge has a population of about 4200 people. There are several public schools and one college that serve residents of Queen’s Park and Handbridge. There are even the famous flats called Salmon Leap, which were built by Gilling Dod and Partners in 1976. You can find these flats featured on the hit television show “Demolition.” Then next to the river is a small cottage with the nickname “Nowhere,” which is rumoured to have been a secret tavern. John Lennon of the Beatles named his song “Nowhere Man” after the cottage. 

If you are coming to Cheshire County then be sure to bring your partner with you. There are just too many fascinating historical sites to see.
