Chester Cathedral has a rich and fascinating heritage, founded in 660, it is truly a remarkable building, with a history spanning almost two thoudand years.

When visiting Chester Cathedral, among the many fantastic sights, there are five amazing featured that can't be missed.

The finest medieval woodcarving in the country: dating from the 13 hundreds, this extraordinary woodwork is a work of art in its own right.

The Cobweb Picture: a picture of the Virgin and Child, painted on the web of a caterpillar, about 200 years old, is a Tyrolean art form. There are apparently only 64 remaining in the world, and this is the only one in the UK.

The Chester Imp: the Imp is a carved representation of the Devil in chains, high up in the clerestory windows of the Nave.

A unique Church Court: this is a unique survivor, the only old ecclesiastical court in the country to have survived.

The Creation Window in the Refectory: the fantastic Creation Window at the west end of the Refectory was designed by Rosalind Grimshaw and installed in 2001.
