Wells Cathedral,Wells Somerset, England.
Wells Cathedral is set in the medieval heart of England’s smallest city and is the earliest English cathedral to be built in the Gothic style.
The wells or springs, still seen today in the Bishop’s Palace garden, are the reason for the original settlement of this area. Over this a Saxon mortuary chapel was built and in about 705, A.D. King Ine of Wessex gave permission for a minster church to be founded here.
The current building was erected between the 12th and 15th centuries and is a significant landmark in Somerset and the South West.
