The swans of Wells

When we were on holiday in Somerset this summer we visited the city of Wells a couple of times. On the second occasion we discovered that there has been a number of model Swans set up within the city and this post shows some of the Swans of Wells.

When we visited the Cathedral we found that it’s possible to get a list of all the swans and try to find them. This seemed just the thing to keep a couple of young children busy and interested for an afternoon so we set about finding as many as we could.

Since I like taking photos, I took a picture of every swan we found, most with James and Emma.

They had great fun walking round the city finding every swan they could – in the end we found about 55  of the 70 or so which had been set up. Since a number of these were outside the city this wasn’t bad at all.

As well as the two featured pictures, other pictures of all the swans we saw are included in the gallery below.
