This Autumn renowned sculptor Sir Antony Gormley is to loan Wells a sculpture which he is making especially for the corner niche of the West Front of the Cathedral.
This will be a huge draw for visitors and residents alike. We hope this project will be something that will boost the recovery of business in Wells in terms of footfall and visitors.
