Church of St John the Baptist, Vicars Lane, Chester - Cheshire West and Chester (UA)

Built of local red sandstone, and close to the remains of the Roman amphitheatre, this church building has the scheduled ancient ruins of the C11 to C12 cathedral integrated into its fabric. The most recent repair work has concentrated on the high level stonework and the replacement of the nave and chancel roof. A further phase of work is required to the crossing/transept roofs.
