A considerable amount of land in Chester is owned by the Duke of Westminster who owns an estate, Eaton Hall , near the village of Eccleston. He also has London properties in Mayfair.

Five people were killed in the accident. The bridge had been designed and built by famed-railway engineer Robert Stephenson for the Chester and Holyhead Railway.

A Royal Commission inquiry found that the trusses were made of cast iron beams that had inadequate strength for their purpose. A national scandal ensued and many new bridges of similar design were either taken down or heavily altered. Potential schemes included a new pedestrian and cycling bridge across the River Dee, linking the Meadows with Huntington and Great Boughton , an access route between Curzon Park and the Roodee , an extension to the existing greenway route from Hoole to Guilden Sutton and Mickle Trafford , and an access route between the Millennium cycle route and Deva Link.

However following a reorganisation of the local authorities effective 1 April the Conservative-led administration of the newly established Cheshire West and Chester council was not very supportive, so comparatively little was actually achieved. Many of the ideas generated at the time were captured in a Cycle Chester Masterplan document.

The Chester Canal had locks down to the River Dee. Canal boats could enter the river at high tide to load goods directly onto seagoing vessels. The port facilities at Crane Wharf, by Chester racecourse, made an important contribution to the commercial development of the north-west region.

Later, those two canal branches became part of the Shropshire Union Canal network. This canal, which runs beneath the northern section of the city walls of Chester, is navigable and remains in use today. From about to the late s, when the canal-side flour mills were closed, narrowboats carried cargo such as coal, slate, gypsum or lead ore as well as finished lead for roofing, water pipes and sewerage from the leadworks in Egerton Street Newtown. Grain from Cheshire was stored in granaries on the banks of the canal at Newtown and Boughton and salt for preserving food arrived from Northwich.

The original plan to complete the Ellesmere Canal was to connect Chester directly to the Wrexham coalfields by building a broad-gauge waterway with a branch to the River Dee at Holt. If the waterway had been built, canal traffic would have crossed the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct heading north to Chester and the River Dee.

As the route was never completed, the short length of canal north of Trevor , near Wrexham was infilled. The Llangollen Canal , although designed to be primarily a water source from the River Dee, became a cruising waterway despite its inherent narrow nature. The network became the Shropshire Union Canal. Chester had a tram service during the late 19th and early 20th centuries which ran from Saltney, on the Welsh border in the west, to Chester General station, and thence also to Tarvin Road and Great Boughton.

The tramway was closed in February , a fate experienced by most other systems in the UK. Chester was home to Chester City F. The club first lost its Football League status in , only to reclaim it four years later as Conference champions, but were relegated again in and went out of business in March after years in existence.
