FOLLOWING ON FROM BITTER WINDS AT THE END OF FEBRUARY, THE FIRST DAY OF MARCH BROUGHT SNOW AND THE NIGHT FREEZING RAIN. ON THE SECOND DAY THE SNOW WAS FROZEN AND EVERYWHERE WAS AN ICE RINK. DESPITE WARNINGS NOT TO GO OUT WE MADE IT TO THE CLIFF TOP BOTH DAYS. - IT WAS A RARE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE MISSED.

FEBRUARY 2018 WELLS, SOMERSET
Wells in Somerset is the smallest city in England; a pleasant town in size, but a city by virtue of having a cathedral. It takes its name from the natural springs which attracted a Roman settlement. The cathedral is twelfth century and nearby is Vicars' Close, designed as lodgings for the men of the choir and the only completely medieval street left in England. This lovely old street is far from being a museum piece; as we were strolling on a term time weekday, music could be heard floating from windows. With a choir that is over eleven hundred years old, the music school is obviously thriving.
The Bishop’s Palace has a moat and plenty of bird life. With the Mendip Hills as a backdrop Wells is a lovely town to wander around.
