St John Baptist Church, Chester: St John the Baptists Church, built in 1075, is a must if you wish for perhaps the most ghoulish sight in Chester. The tower you see today is a 19th century addition as the original fell down in dramatic fashion in 1881 the ruins of which are still on the site today. The church is pleasant inside with some interesting tombstones right at the back and the main attraction is a carving mounted within an attractively carved Corinthian niche. At full height standing behind a drape is a carved skeleton, leering incongruously down at visitors from below the garlands.
