Phoenix Tower, Chester 20755_010

PHOENIX TOWER, CHESTER CITY WALLS. Aerial view. Lying on, or close to the location of the corner tower of the Roman fortress, Phoenix Tower is a much-restored medieval construction, one of a number of projecting defensive towers. Originally Newton Tower it got its new name from the crest of one of Chester's Guilds which occupied it in the 17th century. In 1645, during the English Civil War, King Charles I used the tower as a look-out during the Battle of Rowton Heath during his failed attempt to relieve the siege of Chester by Parliamentarian forces
