Chester Cathedral
Cheshire, England

[Friday - 10/28/94] One of the most popular places to visit in the North West, Chester Cathedral attracts over one million visitors each year. It is the fourth most visited cathedral in the UK and is the most complete medieval monastic complex still standing in Great Britain.

With records of a church on this site since the early tenth century, it was founded as a Benedictine Monastery dedicated to St. Werburgh on 1092. In 1541, following the dissolution of the monasteries, it was rededicated as the Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary in Chester, the mother church of the Church of England Diocese of Chester.

This site has been a place of worship for over one thousand years, standing as a living and vibrant symbol of Christianity in the North West of England. Throughout all of this time its ministry has continued without interruption through periods of adversity such as the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the English Civil War and the two world wars.

Visiting Chester, we were treated to the most complete original City Walls in Britain.
