Official Website -- Wikipedia: Wells Cathedral

The first church was established here in 705 by King Ine of Wessex, at the urging of Saint Aldhelm, Bishop of Sherborne, and some interior features date from this time. Parts of the present structure date to the 10th century, but much of the building was constructed in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and dedicated in 1239. The diocese was split in the 10th century and the first Bishop of Wells was Athelm (circa 909), who crowned King Athelstan and later became Archbishop of Canterbury.

By the reign of Henry VIII the cathedral and peripheral buildings were complete, but the instability of the country -- especially the church -- over the following years led to decline and vandalism of the cathedral. During the civil war dean Dr. Walter Ralegh, nephew of Sir Walter, was imprisoned and later died in the cathedral.

Following the restoration of Charles II to the throne the cathedral was less neglected, but it wasn't until the Victorian era that the cathedral was properly renovated, including the removal of the exterior whitewash that had covered the cathedral since mediaeval times.

The view from wood lane in Stalbridge, looking NNE towards Shaftesbury. I loved the late summer evening light and shadow accross the landscape, and that cloud was quite unique.

This is the Blackmore Vale, the valley of the River Stour. For a time, Thomas Hardy lived five miles south east of here, at Sturminster Newton, and he based the Wessexian "Vale of the Little Dairies" on this area, and until recently it boasted the largest cattle market in the country. The nearest / most prominent hill is Duncliffe, with Cranborne Chase behind. The clay vale is the dividing line between the Devonian sandstones of the west, and the southern English chalk formation of Cranborne Chase, Salisbury Plain, the Isle of Wight and the South & North Downs.

The international park thinggy on the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati, just upstream of Downtown. For some reason that had a collection of staple crops from around the world. In late July some arse stole my bike from inside my house, so in the week I had free between leaving work and leaving the country I had to use the bus, so didn't get to bag as many of the places I had on the to-do list as I'd hoped :(
