A Virtual Stroll Around the Walls of Che

Bibliography and Further Reading

During the slow process of writing Chester: A Virtual Stroll Around The Walls, many, many books old and new have been studied, the pages of the local press closely scrutinised- interesting cuttings from which are even now piled high in inconvenient places waiting to be catalogued and their contents included somewhere within the text- the internet has been Googled to distraction and uncounted numbers of people have been mercilessly quizzed.

We're frequently asked where many of our outlandish tales come from, so we present a bibliography- a partial list of our sources and inspirations- which hopefully will also serve those who would like to find out more as a list of works for further reading.

Be aware that this, as with the Chester Virtual Stroll itself, is a work is far from complete and free from any logical order...
