The ruins of St John’s Church in Chester.

I love the way it frames the tree.

The foundation of the church can be traced back to Saxon times. When in 689 AD King Ethelred (675 – 704) of the Mercians visited Chester and was told by God in a vision to ‘build a Church on the spot where he should find a white hind’. Or so the story goes. The church was built of local red sandstone on a small cliff over looking the River Dee.

The Church was shortened and the three east end chapels were left in ruin after the church lost its collegiate status at the time of the Dissolution.
