It was soggy and rather dull Sunday morning but that it didn't dampen the spirits of the group who had gathered at the entrance to the Bishop's Palace in Wells for a tour of the gardens and the palace itself.
Fortunately the rain held off while we toured the gardens and as you can see from the photograph it started at the end of the tour when we reached the wells. Then it was inside for a conducted tour of the Palace followed by a delightful lunch in the refectory.
Over 15 members and their wives, more than 30 in total enjoyed the day which was organised by the master Richard Leonard and his wife Patricia. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about both the gardens and the Palace and the history of the Cathedral, it is a local place of great interest, sometimes overlooked by visitors to the Cathedral next door, but it is well worth a visit.
