Wordless Wednesday

The Chapter House, Wells Cathedral. Notice how the steps have worn away through the years. The lower set of steps were built from 1286, and the higher steps 200 years later.

  7. I believe on my last WALK WITH ME post you commented on the lovely architecture, for which I thank you. Yet I remember on my first visit to Europe (mid 1970s) realizing that here in America, we are but "babes in the woods" when it comes to architecture and history ... certainly in comparison to all of Europe, to think that these steps date back to 1286! I know I will not enjoy the luxury of another visit there, yet am glad "my minds eye" still holds images of that trip and a few others following. And I am even more pleased to see more shown to me through your eyes, thank you Jackie. Beautiul!

    1. My Mother, coming from the Netherlands, her home town was there in Roman times...she always said the same thing about the things we think are old in North America, as compared to things built before any explorers ever came here! It is a humbling thought!

  8. Impressive cathedral. The shape of stairs catch my eyes. How many people would have been doing this geometry. In a way, they used the most safe position of the stairs...
    I like the image a lot, because I like stairs and arcade!
    Thank you for sharing this place.
    Happy WW and a fabulous week!
