An engraving of the Bishops Palace, Wells made by Samuel and Nathaniel Buck in 1733, showing the wall and moat
In 1548, following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Bishop Barrow, sold the property to Edward Seymour, 1st Duke of Somerset. The grounds were recovered after the execution of the Duke.
Most recently, The Bishop's Palace was transformed into a French Prison for the BBC hit series, Poldark.
If you ever find yourself in Wells, then I highly recommend you check out this beautiful little Palace — you won't be disappointed.
