All Saint’s Church, Saughall is built of Ruabon brick at a cost of approximately £2,300, It opened for worship in 1896, but was not consecrated until 1901, by the Bishop Of Chester. As Church its design is quite a modern looking.

About the_joe_smoe

I started collecting Chester History in 2004 when my father got diagnosed with the terrible illness Alzheimers, i initially started to do family history to try and capture any memories he could recall (i got back to 1610 my wife side of the family & 1724 my side based on his initial recollections), to preserve them for my families future generations, when doing this i found his mind became very active talking about the past. Observing this i started to show old pictures of Chester, and the result was fantastic, he could recall many past scenarios , events, places etc. From this i started to collect all i could about Chester (no expense spared), with the view to try to keep his mind active, i have many pictures, postcards, books, adverts, etc which i would like to share, giving credit to the original authors where possible.
