Historical Site
Mrs月半Wells Wells, England's smallest city, is not far from Bath, and the bus is about an hour away. The city's niche can't find her information at all in the location. However, in the 15 century, the town of Wells was deprived of the important religious position because it was integrated with the Wells District in 1245. Until 2018, Wells, with a population of about 12,000, was the smallest city in England (the “City” is the only town in England to be granted city status by the royal family). Wells was the city, and the cathedral was almost the only reason. The church was first built in the early 8th century AD and was rebuilt in the early 13th century. It was designed in the arches that were popular at the time, and later called the "Gothic" building. Welles Cathedral was the first Gothic church in Britain to be built from foundation to roof. The Jesse Window on the east side of the choir table retains 14th-century stained glass. Only three churches in England retain the original medieval colored windows (two others are the Gloucester and York cathedrals crowned by Henry III) due to the 16th century movement of Henry VIII to close the monastery and the two world wars But the 12th century Gothic style has just begun to become popular in France, and the architects of Wells apparently only heard of the arches but had not learned how to build them tall, and the "slaughty" architects built the "Gothic" Wells Cathedral into a three-story structure similar to a small Romanesque window But accidentally recorded the evolution of the Gothic style in Britain. The church does not need tickets and there is a counter at the door to receive voluntary donations. The church has a free hour-long explanation almost every hour. The crutches of the volunteer, Grandpa, spoke the history of the church with a lively, occasional laughter.
