Chester Cathedral Exterior

I’m ashamed to say that although I have visited Chester many times (living most of my life within fairly easy reach of the city) it was only a few weeks ago that I properly explored it’s Cathedral for the first time.

Originally the abbey church of an 11th Century Benedictine monastery dedicated to St Werburgh, the Cathedral has been extensively modified and restored over the subsequent 900 or so years. Here are a few shots of the exterior, which include the Garden of Remembrance for the Cheshire Regiment which sits within the Cathedral grounds:
