“One of a series of friendly trails written and illustrated during lockdown by the team here at the Visitor Information Centre to give you a warm welcome to our much-loved City of Chester”

Christianity has played an important role in the life of the city for much of Chester's long history. Tradition says that the church of St John the Baptist was founded in AD 689, while the later medieval city was home to nine parishes alongside an abbey and several friaries. This short tour of a little over 1.5 miles (2.5km) will take you to all the existing churches whose establishment predates the 16th century English Reformation. Some are still very active Anglican churches, while others have found themselves playing new roles in more recent years. Along the way we will also discover a few of the city's later churches, illustrating the changing nature of religious practice in Chester.
