Dear Reader,I've just come back from an amazing trip to Wells, Somerset with my long suffering partner, Holly.
More about that later.
More importantly, on the way back we stopped off at Brent Knoll and, to cut a romantic story short, we got engaged.
Wells is beautiful so I'll post a load of photos here soon but in the meantime here's a few examples.
First, the cathedral itself.
Close up on the facade.
This is a water map machine, under construction in the grounds of the Bishop's Palace.
Here's Holly, re-enacting the fountain hoody scene from Hot Fuzz, which was filmed in Wells.
This is a section of a wall I worked on.
You can see where it goes wobbly thanks to the effects of rough scrumpy on my mate Clem.
This is the entrance to Tor Hill Wood, just outside the town, where I worked long ago.
So long ago that the many seedlings I planted are now small trees and I'd forgotten I'd done this until we stumbled across it.
It's the entrance to the woods.
