St. Francis of Assisi

The Church looks a bit modern for me, but as I past it I though it deserved including on the website. As I passed a couple tried to enter the church but it was clearly closed so I was unable to take any pictures inside.

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church

St Francis’ Church is in Grosvenor Street, Chester, Cheshire, England  a 10 minute walk from the court house by the University. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.

Building of the church started in 1862 to a design by Benjamin Bucknell. But after a number of problems and complications, it was completed between 1874 and 1875 by James O’Byrne.

The church is constructed in red sandstone, and has roofs of banded grey and purple slates. At the west end is a narthex porch, above which is a five-light window. Over this is a pair of two-light Geometric windows flanking a canopied niche containing a statue of Saint Francis. On the east and west gables are stone cross finials.
