The Steps to the Chapter House

Wells Cathedral has many secret corners and one of these is the staircase to the Chapter House.  Hidden behind a heavy wooden door this ancient sandstone staircase exudes stories. 

Sweeping up and around each step is worn and battered.

The edge steps less worn and as new as can be expected after hundreds of years of use.

The middle steps are buffeted and bruised.  Dips where thousands of feed have fallen, taking a small amount of the Cathedral on a journey into the world with each footstep.
