Visit to Wells Cathedral
What a fabulous opportunity to do a High Tour Visit at Wells Cathedral.
A really interesting and informative trip around the Cathedral. We learnt so much from our two Guides.
It is not usual to be able to see Jack Blandifers, who hits a bell with a hammer held in his right hand, so close up.
And a close-up view of the Clock. We went behind the scenes and saw where the choristers used to sing out and the trumpeters blew their horns to the people congregating on what is now the Green.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind heights and climbing up some narrow spiral staircases.
