The large granary with loading gantry visible in
this picture was built in 1903 but Wells' history as a port goes
back to Tudor times.
Whelk and shrimp boats can still be seen in the
harbour as this is still a working port. The granary, though has
now been converted into luxury flats.
Despite the town's name, the open sea is about
a mile from the quay. It can be reached by walking along a causeway
which runs parallel to the main shipping channel.
The town itself has several pretty winding streets,
with some surviving Victorian and Edwardian shop fronts.
