Wells (18 June)
This day we visited Wells,Somerset with it quaint churches, shops and inns. The main attraction was Wells Cathedral, the Archbishops residence and other buildings associated with the cathedral. It is a really large establishment including a cathedral music college, a hall and residences for the "vicar's choir" and buildings for the Dean of the Cathedral. The Cathedral itself is very large. Sadly, like in many of these places, no internal photographs are allowed. There is no entrance fee - you are simply forced to make a big donation (we've seen this in a couple of cases and it is obviously a way around the idea that churches are "open").
