Penniless Porch,

Market Square, Wells, with the cathedral as a backdrop and the Penniless Porch mid-photo,

The three-story porch building is constructed from Doulting ashlar stone, which is quarried in the nearby Mendip Hills. And It was named for the beggars who plied their trade there,

The Penniless Porch was painted by the artist William Turner in 1795

A good choice of seating in the marketplace, HBM and a good week!
Large would be my choice!

It’s always too crowded when I go - lovely to see it sans tourists, market etc.
Superb shot Roger!

Many thanks Maggs, this was fairly late in the afternoon and traffic was banned from the square which gave plenty of time for a few shots,
