Originally known as the Earl's Eyes (islands) in an Elizabethan sale document held at the National Archives, this floodland was given to the city in perpetuity by Mr Brown of Brown's of Chester. Here you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city and walk miles along the riverside, returning the same way.
Only a stones throw from chester city centre you can reach the meadows over the suspension bridge in the groves.
Take a walk by the river for miles eventually get to the village of farndon. Or take a short walk to sandy lane ferry where a small boat takes you to the kids play area in sandy lane.
