Exploring England, Part 3

Lately, I have been scrolling through my photos of our March and April trip to England.  Scrolling and scrolling and stopping to gaze at a favorite memory.  Tintagel.  Canterbury.  Manchester.  York.

Glastonbury.  I never had any interest in visiting Glastonbury.  I considered it to be something like Haight Ashbury Street in San Francisco in the 1960s or some place where everyone was performing pagan rituals and dancing in the streets.  I was wrong.

Glastonbury is the site of a marvelous Christian abbey.  Legend says that Glastonbury Abbey was originally founded by Joseph of Arimathea (Yes, that Joseph.  The man who offered his new tomb for Jesus's burial.)  This is the place where, according to more legend, that King Arthur and Queen Guinevere are buried.

And standing high above the abbey is a hill where there was once a church.  Glastonbury Tor.  St. Michael's Tower still stands on the top of the tor.  Feast your eyes on these photos of this Grade 1 listed building, a true treasure of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Christian history.





The 360 degree view is breath-taking.
