Chester Roman Gardens image

Chester's Roman Gardens date from the 1950's when a public park was created to display a collection of finely carved building fragments from the Roman legionary fortress of Deva.

They include pieces from some of the most important military buildings, including the main baths and the legionary headquarters. None of the building fragments originally came from the site, since the Gardens lie just outside the Roman fortress. The City Wall next to the garden is a medieval extension to the Roman defences. Most of the Roman building fragments now housed in the Gardens were found at the end of the nineteenth century during excavations in Chester.
