Wells

The main reason for coming to Cheddar, apart from being a good stop off when heading south, was to see Wells. We had unsuccessfully tried to book a B&B there for a weekend over the winter and so this seemed like an opportunity not to be missed. It was everything and more than we’d read about.

Now we’ve seen a few cathedrals over the last few years including Santiago de Compostela and Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, superb in their own right, of course. But we’d become a bit weary of all the gaudy, gilded imagery of Europe. Wells, with its soaring arches and columns, its intricate medieval carvings as fresh today as when the sculptor put chisel to stone and its broad stained-glass windows refreshes the soul.

 I could wax lyrical but I won’t. Go and see it for yourself.
