A grand day out

The Bishops Palace

My son had an appointment with the orthodontist yesterday in Wells. I hadn't realised that it was also market day there so I took a few photos too. Wells is one of the smallest cities in the UK (it may be the smallest). It has a large cathedral. Wells is also the place that was used for the town in the film "Hot Fuzz". It is a very picturesque place. It also has the Bishop's Palace where the swans ring a bell to be fed. How clever! My children do exactly the same. The photos where taken on my phone by my son. What a budding photographer.

As you can see, it was a fairly overcast day with some rain showers. We also had a trip to the LYS there but I will post more about our adventures there later.


  1. Hi Janine - it looks lovely there - great photos. Jeanette

  2. What beautiful pictures! Love the Cathedral, marketplace and the Bishop's House. Also the story about the swans ringing the bell to be fed! So much history in your country, especially compared to where I live in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.

  3. Beautiful place. Just gorgeous...stokes my inner desire to visit the UK(I've had this desire since I was a teen, but have never made it there) - thought it was gonna happen this summer, but not too be...
