A beautiful Somerset Cathedral – WELLS will ring for St. George

This magnificent building, WELLS, designed in the Gothic style, was started in 1175 and took 80 years to build.  Hardly surprising when it is a collection of astonishing architectural and sculptural design.  It has a tower that holds the second oldest clock mechanism in the country.  It has a wondrous stained glass window that is called The Jesse Window which is the original dating from 1340.  The most photographed front of a cathedral is the West Front of Wells for here is a quite remarkable display of medieval statues all telling the Christian story.  Then there are the famous scissor arches which were the result of a brilliant solution to overcome the weight of the tower above and these were constructed in 1338. The bell tower holds the heaviest ring of 10 bells in the world and they too will be ringing out for ST. GEORGE and will be heard right across the county.
