  • Have you ever wanted to visit Chester, in Cheshire (Great Britain)? Located on its Lower Bridge Street, the St Olave’s Church is one of its most renowned landmarks and you should not leave it out. Currently regarded a redundant religious structure, it was established as early as the 11th century (quite a feat). Having been melded with the adjacent St Michael’s church, it ended up being closed. Renovated during the 19th century by the architect James Harrison, it was eventually listed as a Grade II structure within the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest (in 1955, to be precise). Presenting Gothic architectural standards, it has been serving the Pentecostal church as their Chester Revival Centre (since 1972).
