I have been to Wells several times but this visit was to visit locations used in the Film "Hot Fuzz". I had not been to the church before but found it a beautiful & understated church. So peaceful and quiet yet so full of history.

I confess it was the Hot Fuzz scene with the áccident' that brought us here but aren't we glad. A wonderful church which is a must if you are visiting Wells.
