Wells 2

I posted some photos of Wells Cathedral here and am now adding a few photos from outside, and around the city.


Vicars' Close, in Wells, Somerset, England, is claimed to be the oldest purely residential street with original buildings surviving intact in Europe. It was completed in 1348, with the chimneys added in Tudor times.
