Wings

………Continuing to share our lovely bright Winter’s walk around the Bishop’s Palace, Wells, Somerset, England.

There is a smaller wings sculpture in the South Garden.

  1. Hello. What fabulous photos! ‘I’ve just been blogging today about how I’m going to Wells this weekend (plus Wookey Hole which looks amazing) but you’ve really inspired me to find some real photo opportunities. Wells sounds amazing. Did you go around the area too? I’ll be staying there for just one night so any ideas would be great. Thank you πŸ™‚

    • I did not look round the city when I was in Wells, just the Bishop’s Palace Gardens, which are spectacular. There is Glastonbury Tor nearby, which is worth a climb on a clear day. It sounds like you have a great trip planned. Have fun!

  2. Beautiful photos indeed – clear blue skies make the cold more than bearable, don’t they? Bishop’s Palace must have been a treat on a day like this as it’s stunning even on a dull day!

    I can see that you ladies had a great time. What fun being able to climb up the ramparts and look about. I love seeing the birds in your part of the world.
