Plans on display for Cathedral changes

Artists impressions of planned changes to the world famous Cathedral in Chester have gone on display to the public.

Cheshire West and Chester Council wants to spend millions of pounds transforming the area around the building to make it more visible and attract more tourists.

Dean of Chester, the Very Reverend Professor Gordon McPhate said:

"The Cathedral is a fascinating and intriguing complex, making a significant contribution to the life of the city, spiritually, culturally and economically.

"However, it is often said that it is ‘hidden in full view’ and we want to improve its setting to allow greater appreciation and easier access to this wonderful complex."
