Spirit of Wells Cathederal

  • Description

The Spirit of Wells Cathedral is so powerful that people come here again and again. The building has a unity and a scale that make it both satisfying and familiar, and its setting beside the springs which explain its name is exquisite. Yet those who know the building well still see things they had never noticed before. In style pure Gothic, pure English, its magic is revealed by sunlight streaming in at different angles according to the season and the time of day; by candlelight when the sun has set and, in recent years, by the many facets of artificial light.

With an expert text illuminated by more than sixty full colour photographs by Michael Blandford, renowned historian Robert Dunning explores the Cathedral. He offers a unique perspective on an extraordinary place, all encapsulated in a handy pocket-sized format which will be an ideal reminder of a visit to the Cathedral as well as a guide to its remarkable features.

Robert Dunning has been licensed by five bishops of Bath and Wells as a reader in their diocese and long ago wrote a thesis on the activities of five of their predecessors. He was for nearly forty years the official historian of the county of Somerset and is the author of numerous books about the county and its religious buildings.
