About Wells

As the aircraft ascends, a panoramic view of England's smallest city, Wells, comes into clear, breath taking focus, revealing a tapestry woven from the medieval era to the present day, set against the verdant backdrop of the Mendip Hills.

Wells is immediately distinguishable from the air by its most iconic landmark, the Wells Cathedral. With its Gothic facade and scissor arches, the cathedral dominates the cityscape, a testament to architectural ingenuity and spiritual devotion spanning centuries. From this elevated perspective, the intricate design details of the cathedral, alongside the Vicar's Close—the oldest purely residential street with original buildings surviving in Europe—tell tales of a bygone era, preserved amidst the flow of modern life.

Adjacent to the cathedral, the Bishop's Palace, with its surrounding moat, stands as a fortress of tranquillity. The palace gardens, meticulously curated and blooming with a variety of flora, offer a splash of colour and life that contrasts with the ancient stone walls. The moat and the swans that gracefully navigate its waters add a layer of serene beauty, visible from the skies, encapsulating Wells's blend of natural and constructed elegance.

The city's layout, revealed in its entirety from the air, showcases a harmonious blend of the historical and the contemporary. The medieval streets radiate outward from the cathedral, lined with a mixture of period buildings and more modern constructions. Market Place, at the heart of Wells, functions as the city's pulsating centre, where community life has flourished for centuries. From weekly markets to annual festivals, the square's vitality and significance within Wells are accentuated from this bird's-eye view.

Beyond the immediate city centre, Wells transitions seamlessly into the surrounding countryside, with the lush greenery of Somerset enveloping the city. The agricultural fields, marked by the distinctive patchwork of hedges and stone walls, reflect the region's deep-rooted farming heritage. The contrast between the urban density of Wells and the expansive openness of the surrounding fields highlights the unique position Wells occupies, straddling the line between city life and rural tranquillity.

From the helicopter, the view extends to the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The rolling hills and valleys provide a dramatic backdrop to Wells, their presence a constant reminder of the natural splendour that surrounds and defines the city. The interaction between the city and its landscape, characterized by a respect for natural contours and beauty, underscores Wells's harmony with its environment.

The Priddy Nine Barrows and the Ebbor Gorge, though a short distance from Wells, contribute to the overarching narrative of the area's rich history and prehistoric significance, visible in their full majesty from above. These landmarks serve as natural extensions of Wells, pieces of a broader historical and geographical puzzle that the city is a part of.

Witnessing Wells from the air also brings into focus the intricate network of roads and paths that connect the city to the rest of Somerset and beyond. This connectivity underscores Wells's role not just as a historical or cultural island but as a living, breathing entity that interacts dynamically with its surroundings.
