Handmade poppies are on display, until Sunday,  in all the churches in Wells to commemorate the end of the First World War one hundreds years ago.

Wells Cathedral
The famous steps leading to the Chapter House are one of the most popular and photographed parts of the cathedral and are the location of several film scenes. Today this sea of steps was covered in a waterfall of red and white knitted poppies.

Of course the display is very popular so getting a view as clear as this meant getting up early.
