Chester Cathedral is many things to many people: a vibrant community of worship, an ancient abbey, an archaeological treasure, a cultural hub, a centre of musical excellence and a unique blend of medieval and modern history.

There is an evening service every night that occasionally includes the choir.
While this Cathedral is impressive in its scope it never loses an intimacy with you. It was a bright and sunny day in October when a too short visit took place, and perhaps because it was a bright day the place felt warm. The absolute...More

I certainly did use my camera. Especially on the Lego project. They are aiming to build a model of the whole of the cathedral in Lego. Pay a £1 and you can add a brick - or more if you're flush!
