Secret Chester Summary

Secret Chester by John Idris Jones

Secret Chester offers a unique insight into one of England's most visited cities through a series of little-known and forgotten stories, facts and anecdotes. Author and historian John Idris Jones takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Roman times to the present day, blending dark deeds and strange tales from its long and often grisly past, as well as introducing us to some interesting characters along the way. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, the book delves beneath the surface of this ancient city revealing a lesser-known history that most local people don't know.

About John Idris Jones

Born in the remote Welsh-speaking village of Llanrhaiadr-ym-Mochnant in mid-Wales, the author as a child spent many months at his grandparents' house in Borth-y-Gest, near Porthmadog. Here he witnessed the active port, the remains of the slate industry and the Ffestiniog Railway.
