£7.5m project to revitalize Chester Cathedral

The Cheshire West and Chester Executive Council has given the go-ahead for a £7.5m project that will bring major changes to the Chester Cathedral. The council will now issue a tender for a single contractor to oversee the first phase of the ?Cathedral at Height? project.

?Cathedral at Height? aims to convert the medieval tower into a unique viewing gallery. The council hopes to ?open-up? the ideal city-centre setting for Chester?s top tourist attraction, plus add a new flexible stage in the Nave providing a venue seating between 1,200-1,800.
