Wells Next the Sea is a seaport town on the north coast in England. Wells gets its name from the many spring wells that used to rise through the ground. Wells was once a major port with corn being the main trade. While Wells at one time sat right on the coast, it is now a mile from the North Sea due to the mud and sediment built up on the harbour. In 1859, a large mile long sea wall was built adding to the effects of the build up. The town is not only a seaport, but also a popular seaside resort reachable by railway which runs along the sea wall. The beach is a popular for tourists who can enjoy the flat terrain, sand dunes, various beach huts, and even a naturist area. If you have a sense of adventure and are able to obtain some information for locals, you can cross over the shipping channel at low tide and check out some tidal sands and pools. This can be very dangerous if you aren't careful though because the tide is unpredictable and comes in fast; no one can outrun the tide.
The town is small but has much to offer. There are many shops and businesses in the area. The most unique landmark in the town is the granary and a large attraction is focused on The Buttlands. The Buttlands is a large green field surrounded by lime trees. Much of the larger houses and a few of the hotels overlook The Buttlands. The town does not have too much to offer since it was struck by a huge and damaging flood in the 1950s. It is a little harder to get to, due to the railways being closed and never reopened. If you do make it to Wells, relax near the beach and enjoy the nature that will surround you.
