St Werburgh's Roman Catholic Parish, Chester

Civic / Heritage

Chester is a city rich in architectural and cultural heritage, extending from Roman times with rich representation from the medieval, Jacobean and Victorian periods. St Werburgh's Church takes its place alongside a collection of high Victorian town houses by the entrance to the beautiful Grosvenor Park. The Church was designed and built between 1873-5 and 1913-14 by Edmund Kirby, a Liverpool architect responsible for many church and public buildings in Liverpool, the north west of England and North Wales. It was given a Grade II listing on 23 July 1998.

We are happy to participate in the annual Heritage Open Days organised by the Chester Civic Trust in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council.
