Glastonbury Tor, Somerset is part of England’s West Country.The Tor is a conical hill which, many thousands of years ago, before draining of the local landscape would have formed an island. (Tor is an Old English name for rocky hill.) The site appears to have had spiritual significance for local people both pre and post Christianity. On top of the Tor is a tower, being the remains of a church built in 1323.

Today, we visited Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury Tor, Wells Cathedral and the Royal Crescent in Bath. All of the foregoing being in Somerset, England.
