Noble Friends,

Wikipedia's featured picture for today is this view of the Cathedral 
Church of St. Andrew, more commonly known as Wells Cathedral: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (scroll to the bottom). A full 
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: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishop%27s_Palace,_Wells . The Bishop's 
See also includes the substantial church of Bath Abbey. This well-known 
church is often called a cathedral, and has occasionally been the seat 
of bishops, but is currently a very large medieval parish church: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_Abbey .

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.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, Whose Visit to Wells Cathedral lasted on half an hour :~(
