Chester author claims cold caused City Walls to fall down

Geoff Nelder's book Chester Climate: Past and Present has been reissued

Author and former geography teacher Geoff Nelder has reissued his book Chester Climate Past and Present which claims it was once so cold the City Walls fell down

There may be a chill in the air but is it cold enough for Chester’s City Walls to fall down?

Could extreme weather patterns lead to us having to eat family members to survive?

According to Chester author and former geography teacher Geoff Nelder this is just a case of old news.

The former Queen’s Park High School geography master goes on to claim in a new edition of his book Chester Climate: Past and Present that trees have been uprooted in the city centre and that a church killed a child.

The latest edition of the non-fiction ebook was released on January 4, 2017 and also answers more mundane questions like:

  • Did the mid 20th Century have the best summers?
  • Are we due for the storm of centuries?
  • How is the Chester climate suitable for farming?
