Silent Sunday…… Off to Church

The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew

probably best known as….

Wells Cathedral, Somerset

Last Sunday I  took you on a visit to a church that was very much smaller, but was built in the same era as Wells.

Wells Cathedral really is a fantastic structure. The stone masons skill is still clear to see today in the detailed exterior stone work.  Wells is also unlike many Cathedrals that lie within a City, in so much, as here you can really stand back and take in its shear size.

Despite its exterior size this building is a bit like a Tardis, it appears even bigger on the inside…

Yes, step inside and stand at the back of the nave,  let your gaze take in the gothic columns and arches and come to rest on the arched and beautifully decorated ceiling.  It has quite a contemporary feel and style for a building of its age (started circa 700ad, main building circa 1490ad)…..

you just have to stand and stare…  you will be amazed, maybe even overwhelmed
