The lovely Overleigh Water Tower, almost art-deco in style, was opened in 1937 so it is quite new in this image.

St Michaels Church, now a museum as Chester History and Heritage Centre. On the site of an earlier church. Almost completely rebuilt 1582, widened 1678, steeple built 1710. Usual 19th century major rebuilding about 1850 although the 1496 chancel roof remains. Declared redundant in 1972. The "Bridge Street Row" passes through the lower level of the tower.

Chester Cathedral - or more properly, Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Grade 1. Dates from 1093 but modified many times. Extensively "restored" in the 19th Century. Facing us in this image is the very large South Transept with the South door. The Choir is to the right of the central tower, and further to the right is the Lady Chapel.

The Parish Church of St John the Baptist, Grade 1 listed. Ruins in the grounds of a pre-dissolution building can be seen (a listed monument). Although of great age, the church has been subject to considerable collapse, demolition and renovation. Major works at the end of the 19th Century took their toll on the ancient fabric and the exterior is largely Victorian. Some older fragments remain inside the building.
