St Andrews

The event is organised by a partnership of Chester Civic Trust with Cheshire West and Chester Council , in association with Tarvin Civic Trust and other local Societies.
There are a number of events centred around Tarvin's St Andrew's Church on Saturday 14th September.

  • The church will be open (hosted by Tarvin Civic Trust) from 10.00am to 4.00pm- an opportunity to explore this lovely Grade I listed 14th century parish church and its fascinating history exhibition with remains of a Saxon cross.
  • Starting at 2.30pm from the church there is a Historical walking tour guided by Tarvin Local History Group of the historic centre of Tarvin township. Its history begins in Roman times and the centre contains half-timbered cottages and fine Georgian buildings as well as the imposing St. Andrews church.
    Parish Rooms

  • Finally to conclude a great day, Tarvin's Art Group are staging an exhibition of their work in the Parish Room (Old Grammar School- Grade II listed). They will be serving light refreshments so you could buy a cup of tea and a painting at the same time!
