Wells Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in Wells, Somerset, dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle and seat of the Bishop of Bath and Wells. Built before 909 to replace an earlier church on the site since 705, it is moderately sized for an English cathedral. Its broad west front (depicted here) and large central tower are dominant features. It has been called "unquestionably one of the most beautiful" and "most poetic" of English cathedrals. Its Gothic architecture is mostly in the Early English style of the late 12th – early 13th centuries, lacking the Romanesque work that survives in many other cathedrals. The stonework of its pointed arcades and fluted piers bears pronounced mouldings and carved capitals in a foliate, "stiff-leaf" style. Its Early English front with 300 sculpted figures, is seen as a "supreme triumph of the combined plastic arts in England".
