The three photographs shown here are all of old parts of Wells next the sea taken the week before last, and all show windows onto the street which have obviously been built as shop windows, and are now windows in the fronts of domestic residences (homes). They are all of late eighteenth century through to early/mid nineteenth century appearance. This would appear to indicate that Wells next the sea was (at the period mentioned) a much busier market town than it is now. A small fishing village would be a more apt description of the town now.
This last weekend we drove down to Hampshire to attend a meeting of the Early Metalware Society. We stopped over on Saturday and Sunday nights at youngest daughter, Liz's home; slept there, and drove home this morning. Good, informative (and rather tiring) weekend.
