THG Church House Restored Jan 1991 Scan_20180224

Three years of restoration work on Church House was completed in January 1991. The building was originally a parlour wing added to the Church Cottages which were built in the 16th Century. Discoveries made during the restoration included small mullioned windows and a stone fireplace with a coat-of arms carved into it.

The photograph shows the then Duke of Westminster, Patron of the Chester Historic Preservation Trust, receiving a picture of the Elizabethan building from the Trust Chairman, Dr Allan Pullin.
