There are lots of cheese and cider shops which also sell all kinds of locally made chutneys and jams and there is a cheese making factory where you can see the cheese being made. There were quite a few sweet shops selling handmade sweets and they had the machines on display actually making the sweets as well.
This photo shows one of the few clouds in the sky and it was a spectacular one!! It poked out over the top of the gorge like a Mr Whippy ice cream and looks soft and fluffy!!
The Cathedral is a spectacular building, we were there at around 6pm and the sun gave it a lovely glow.
The photo below shows the centre part of the West Front and depicts the day of judgement. Christ is flanked by two six winged seraphim and supported by the twelve apostles, angels and saints to welcome the seeker into New Jerusalem.
There is so much detail on the cathedral front. It is built from a local limestone which in the afternoon sun seems to glow.
The inside is is also stunning and you can walk though the cathredral and go all around the walls and reach the other side of the cathedral from where you started. The roof of the cathedral is very decorative.
At the moment there is an exhibition showing the Turin Shroud here.
I would really recommend a trip to Wells to see the Cathedral as it is a superb building with lots of interesting things to see inside. Don't miss the clock which dates back to 1390. When the clock strikes on the quarter, jousting knights rush around above it and the Quarter Jack bangs the quarter hours with his heels.
There is a market in Wells on a Wednesday and Saturday so those are good days to visit Wells. The market had closed by the time we got there sadly!
