Chester Cathedral

Interesting
The 11C Norman abbey church was replaced by the present red sandstone building between 1250 and 1540 which has been carefully restored since 1868. Many of the original abbey buildings still stand around the 16C cloisters. Note the remarkable hammer-beam roof of the refectory. The Dean and Chapter still meet in the 13C Chapter House.
