I was strange to walk about it again - seeing shops that had changed a great deal, pubs that had been cleaned up a little, but were still familiar and the Cathedral which looked identical!
Having said that I was surprised that some of the shops were basically unchanged, even though I had not been in then for 30 years. The shop where I bought fishing tackle and bait as a kids looked the same! All that was different was that the parrot that used to sit on a perch outside of the shop seemed to have passed on!
The area around the Cathedral contains the Bishops Palace, which is surrounded by a moat. Generally Wells has escaped the dull hand post war improvement, and still retains much of its character.

And lots of things to see from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
