About the event

Photography Walk: Glastonbury Town

Glastonbury has a unique flavour and character. Made famous by the nearby Glastonbury Festival at Piton it attracts visitors and pilgrims from all over the world. The town is thought to have been a site for pre-Christian worship, perhaps because of its location by the Tor, the highest of the hills surrounding Glastonbury and a superb natural viewpoint. Evidence from timber trackways such as the Sweet Track show that the town has been inhabited since Neolithic times. Joseph of Arithamea is said to have arrived in Glastonbury and stuck his staff into the ground, when it flowered miraculously into the Glastonbury Thorn. We’ll have a look around and visit points of interest like the building which housed the old market stalls, the spot where people were betrothed in the 15th Century, one of the finest surviving medieval inns in the country, the Glastonbury mural and the Glastonbury Thorn, from which a branch decorates the Queen’s Christmas breakfast table each year.

Now Glastonbury is described as a ‘New Age community’ and is notable for myths and legends often related to Glastonbury Tor, concerning Joseph of Arimathea, the Holy Grail and King Arthur.
