Vicar's Close wurde zwischen 1348 bis 1430 erbaut und gilt als die älteste erhaltene "Reihenhaussiedlung" Großbritanniens. Bis heute ist sie überwiegend von Mitgliedern des Kathedralchors und kirchlichen Mitarbeitern bewohnt. Die 460m lange Sackgasse wird zum Ende hin schmäler, ein optischer Trick, um sie länger wirken zu lassen. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicars%27_Close,_Wells

Louis is a ginger tom hunting mice in Wells cathedral. His favourite place is a basket in the gift shop but here we met him in the market place. He barely suffered the girls' interest and quickly disapperaed again;-) www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/mar/16/cathedral-cat-under-suspicion-following-dog-attacks-in-wells
