A record of our unique windows

We are pleased to have released a record of our stained glass windows in the Cloisters: the first time in 100 years that these unique windows have been recorded.

Chester Cathedral’s Cloisters, glazed in the 1920s at the Very Reverend Frank Bennett’s suggestion, Dean of Chester (1920-1937).

There are 34 windows in the Cloister with 130 lights (sub-division of a window). Each window has at least one memorial and 147 local people are remembered in this way.

A dedicated team worked with Canon Jane Brooke, Vice Dean to photograph and tell the story of the saint or holy day, captured in our Gallery of Saints book. Read the full document using the link below.
