    Three Arches, Chester

    The Three Old Arches is purported to be the oldest surviving shop frontage in Britain.
    The three arches at Row level are some of the earliest structures to be seen in the famous Chester Rows and provide a vital clue to what Chester's medieval stone houses looked like from the street.
