During the summer we went camping with a lot of our friends in Glastonbury. We went with Sharon, Neil, Kayleigh, Steffie, Sally, Dave, Karen and Alia. But Like always we forgot to take any pictures of them :( Next time gang .....
Anyway - Glastonbury is famous for its Tor, with a very early church tower on top of it. However, the tower was being repaired and had scaffold all over it and it rained like hell on the day we were planning to climb it. So not even any pictures :( Glastonbury has great Christian significance (in that it is supposed to have a thorn bush descended from one bought from Palestine, almost 2000 years ago) and it is heavily associated with both Arthurian legend and general Celtic Mythology. Now its one of the main the New Age centers in the UK - and the town is a delightful mix of traditional country folk and new age 'hippies'. (click HERE to find out more about Glastonbury)
Anyway - on Saturday we visited the town and the Abbey.
The deserted abbey church is still consecrated ground and occasionally used for services.
It has a fine example of a mediaeval kitten - which was being used for a choir recital while we were there
On Sunday we went out to lunch in a nice pub (it rained cats and dogs) then we went to a 'country life' museum. We had been intending to climb the Tor - but in that weather? No Chance!
