Artist's Description

Situated in the gentle county of Somerset – with its name originating from the three springs in the grounds of the old Bishops Palace – Wells is one of England’s smaller cathedrals. Although the diocese was first created in the early 10th century, during 1088 the see was transferred to Bath and it wasn’t until mid 13th century that Wells regained cathedral status.

The site history has been traced back to Roman times, and the first church dates back to early 8th century. However, it wasn’t until c1180 that the present Wells Cathedral was started, and continued being built over the next three hundred years. By the middle of the 13th century the imposing west front had been decorated with a vast array of statues. This outstanding collection of Kings, saints, angels and biblical characters is believed to be the largest collection of medieval sculptures in the world.
