Wednesday 22nd April, Day Trip by coach to Wells, Somerset.

Wells is a medieval city with history going right back to Roman times when we know that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.

It is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It remains remarkably unspoilt and has many other historic buildings including the moated Bishop's Palace, Vicars' Close, St Cuthbert's Church and a good local museum. The Wells Market Place, with lively markets twice a week, the narrow streets and an eclectic mix of building styles all reflect on the continuing development of the town throughout the ages.

Cost £21.00pp including drivers gratuity. Book your place now with Ken Arkell
