Sadler Street, Wells, Somerset, England, Great Britain
Wells, Somerset.

Sadler Street at dusk. Three of Well's four hotels are to be found in this street with the White Hart, where we stayed for the duration of our trip in August 2008, being shown.

Sadler Street is narrow and, consequently, one way and leads to the Market Square and the High Street at the far end.

Brown's Gatehouse, Wells, Somerset, England, Great Britain
Wells, Somerset.

Opposite the White Hart is one of the cathedral gatehouses, shown here at dusk, which leads on to the cathedral green.

This gatehouse is known as Brown's Gatehouse and was built in 1451 by Bishop Beckynton who also built Penniless Porch. It was also sometimes referred to as the Dean's Eye.

The Fountain, Wells, Somerset, England, Great Britain
Wells, Somerset.

The Fountain or Conduit is situated at the junction of the Market Square and High Street and was where the people of Wells originally drew their water. It is supplied by the wells or springs in the Bishop's Palace Gardens and the overflow is taken away by a wide channel along one side of the High Street which eventually drains into the River Sheppey.

Terraced Cottages, Union Street, Wells, Somerset, England, Great Britain
Wells, Somerset.

Union Street connects High Street with Chamberlain Street and runs parallel to Sadler Street. We saw these rather nice terraced cottages opposite the entrance to the Public Library.
