Wells Cathedral is one of the most wonderful cathedrals in South England. We went thenre after visiting the Sonehenge so maybe we couldn’t admire it because of the emotion lived in the morning.

There is a beautiful astronomical clock inside the cathedral:

The clock has 24 marks for each hous of the day and it is a hole through which you can see the Moon phase:

You can also see spheres fot the day of the month and the minutes of the hour. In each hour, the clock has a carillon which is very curious: the wooden man which is sitting in the upper right corner of the second photography rings the bell while two wooden knights over the clock fight in a duel.
