  • Very interesting first Cathedral in Chester. Freezing cold today for our visit excellent history talk hy Vic.

  • Extract from Wikipedia St John the Baptist's Church is in Vicar's Lane, Chester, Cheshire, England. The church was a cathedral during the Middle Ages, though only the seat of the bishop in practice from 1075 to 1095. It lies outside the city walls on a cliff above the north bank of the River Dee.[1] The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building. It is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Chester. Its benefice is combined with that of St Peter, Chester.[3] Alec Clifton-Taylor includes it in his list of 'best' English parish churches,[4] and it is considered to be the best example of 11th–12th century church architecture in Cheshire.

  • St Johns is gorgeous outside and in and packed full of history dating back to the 600s. I highly recommend doing the quick free tour--the guide was knowledgeable and pointed out many subtle things of interest. The ruins on the grounds are stunning and definitely worth a wander.
