Chester is a pleasant place to go shopping.
The jewellers Boodle and Dunthorne was founded in Liverpool in 1798.
It's one of those places that if you have to ask the price ... you can't afford it.
It was the window reflections that caught my eye... not the diamonds.
Boodles can be seen through the pillars... next door is the five star Grosvenor Hotel.
Chesters Rows consist of covered walkways at the first floor behind which are entrances to shops.
At street level is another set of shops many of which are entered by going down a few steps.
Found in each of the four main streets the first record of the Rows appears in 1293... it is thought that apart from a small number of later buildings the Rows had reached it's full extent by around 1350.
