"You may think I’m just a supporting wall, but I have an important part to play: I’m proud to be propping up one of the oldest shopping streets in England!”
The Wall at Weasel and the Bug
Chester’s rows are unique in the world. Dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries, they were designed as a way of cramming as many shops, cellars and houses as possible into a very small space. Weasel and the Bug is tucked away in what is known as “the crypt of the Rows.” This traditional toyshop sells the kind of toys that children have always loved.
