Some iPhone shots from our visit to Cheshire.
This is Chester Cathedral it is the mother church of the Church of England Diocese of Chester, and is located in Chester city centre, Cheshire, England. The cathedral, formerly St Werburgh’s abbey church of a Benedictine monastery, is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Since 1541 it has been the seat of the Bishop of Chester and centre of worship, administration, ceremony and music for the city and diocese.
The cathedral is a Grade I listed building, and part of a heritage site that also includes the former monastic buildings to the North, also listed Grade I. The cathedral, typical of English cathedrals in having been modified many times, dates from between 1093 and the early 16th century, although the site itself may have been used for Christian worship since Roman times. All the major styles of English medieval architecture, from Norman to Perpendicular, are represented in the present building.
This is a Milestone we found outside an old pub in Tarporley we had lunch in.
A milestone is one of a series of numbered markers placed along a road or boundary at intervals of one mile or occasionally, parts of a mile. They are typically located at the side of the road or in a median. They are alternatively known as mile markers, mileposts or mile posts (sometimes abbreviated MPs).
See the town of Nantwich on the MP below, the ‘wich’ at the end of the name means salt, so places ending in wich had salt, either stored, for sale or just there.
Another cool sign in Tarporley.
Last one is a huge sculpture in the grounds of an Adventure Trail the boy’s, Archie and I spent a couple of hours getting muddy on.
