Photo a day...3rd April.
When we visited Wells I was determined to visit Vicars' Close which is just behind the Cathedral. It is the oldest planned street in Europe!
To read up about it look here
I love the symmetry of the buildings, the peace of the close with no through traffic or car parking, and the feeling of history there.

Vicars Close, just off Cathedral Green, Wells, dates from the early 15th century and is often said to be the best preserved medieval street in Europe. It has changed little over the centuries. The tall chimneys were added in 1465. Vicars Close was built to provide homes for the Cathedral's vicars and even today it is occupied by those working for the Bishop of Bath and Wells.
At the end furthest from the Cathedral is a small chapel. It is interesting to note that the width of Vicars Close narrows as it heads up to this chapel - from approximately 65 feet wide at the entrance to just 56 feet wide by the chapel. A stroll along the cobbled street of Vicars Close is a real delight.
This one in the top left hand corner can be rented as a holiday home.
