St John the Baptist Church, Chester: 5 reviews and 16 photos
In 1862 Saxon coins which were minted in the reign of Edward the Elder who reigned from 899-925 were found buried under the church. At the same time some saxon crosses and other artefacts were also found and these are displayed in the church.
Also the church is said to be haunted. Schoolboys apparently saw a monk on the spiral staircase leading to the bell tower and other witnesses saw a nun in the graveyard.
