CHURCH AND PRIORY OF S. JOHN AT CHESTER, AND CLIFFSIDE CHAPEL OF S. GOVAN

CHURCH AND PRIORY OF S. JOHN AT CHESTER, AND CLIFFSIDE CHAPEL OF S. GOVAN

Once S. John's Church (bottom) held cathedral rank ; that was before the present Chester Cathedral rose within the walls of the old Roman town. By the south wall of the churchyard is a hermit's cell, said to have been used by a legendary King Harold resuscitated after the Battle of Hastings. The top left photograph shows the remains of the Benedictine priory. The little chapel of S. Govan's (top right), half way down the cliff near S. Govan's Head Pembrokeshire, is the reputed retreat of the Arthurian knight, Gawain.
