Wells Cathedral

This cathedral in Wells, England was so amazing - almost every inch of the front had some sort of carving of a statue or design on it. The twelve apostles were carved into the top/middle section. Inside the cathedral in the North Transept (all cathedrals are shaped like a cross - the North Transept would be the left hand side of the cross) there is a medieval clock. Every quarter hour, mechanical knights on horses come out and "joust." There is also a small circle in the middle of the clock which gets full of gold as the moon gets fuller.

That is so cool. Do you know how long it took to build the cathedral?
