Yesterday an intrepid group of Brue Valley Rotarians braved the upper levels of Wells Cathedral. Having met our guides and signing to say that we were all fit enough for the coming exertions, we set off on the tour.
Learning of the history of the Cathedral on the ground floor, including the story of the sound holes and of the different carvings on the facade, we began our climb. Although steep and narrow, it wasn’t too strenuous and we soon made it to the first level.
Up and around the eaves was awe inspiring, given that there were no mechanical tools available during construction. We continued to higher levels and visited the mason’s office where evidence of his work was still visible on the floor.
Fortunately we all made it back to earth, a tour well worth the effort !
