Wells Cathedral

Wells Cathedral is dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle and is the seat of the Bishop of Bath and Wells.

The first church on the site was established in AD705. The present building, dating from between 1175 and 1490, with its broad west front and large central tower, is a significant landmark and the dominant feature of this small cathedral city.

The architecture of the cathedral presents a harmonious whole, being entirely Gothic and mostly in a single style, the Early English Gothic of the late 12th and early 13th centuries.

The cathedral is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building (English heritage ID:483287 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings) and scheduled monument
