A by-law, first appearing in 1403, states that a Welsh person found within Chester’s city walls after sunset can be legally shot with a bow and arrow! After Welsh uprisings in the city, Prince Henry (later Henry V) demanded the Welsh be driven out of the city and incited Chester residents to kill any Welsh sympathisers. Of course, the by-law has long since been suspended, though it still crops up in Parliament and in local elections.
