feature on Wells Cathedral's history and architecture, with many more
lovely photos, is found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wells_Cathedral .
The current church is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Bath and Wells.
The fortified Bishop's Palace, a real moated castle, is located within
the church precincts:

See also includes the substantial church of Bath Abbey. This well-known

The entire Wells Cathedral complex is one of the finest churches in
England, and one of the most complete intact medieval precincts. Enjoy
the marvelous photos.
